The National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE) held their 27th
annual convention at the Phoenix Marriott Mesa Hotel in Phoenix
where more than 20 trade exchanges attended.
The convention, hosted by Arizona Trade Exchange, consisted of
seminars for trade exchange owners, brokers, and sales
representatives. Along with the seminars and discussion panels,
convention attendees had a good time this year at the many social
events planned as a means for networking. Those events included the
NATE Trade Out and the awards banquet that was held at the F1 Racing
Factory � a fun place in and of itself.
Additionally, NATE offered Certified Trade Broker (CTB) training to
attending brokers. Of the 20 brokers taking the exam, 14 passed and
are now Registered Trade Brokers. After completing the rest of the
training requirements, they will then move on to become CTBs.
