For their dedication and their strong leadership within the auction industry, two long-time auction professionals have been inducted into the Minnesota State Auctioneers Association Hall of Fame. Charlie Fischer, of Long Lake, SD and Mike Schultz, of Upsala, MN, received the honor during the Conference and Show held January 22-24, 2009 at the Alltel Center, Mankato, MN.

The Hall of Fame was created in 1987 to honor individuals who have demonstrated honesty, high ethical standards, a willingness to share with others, a high standing in his or her community and the Minnesota State Auctioneers, and made significant contributions to the auction profession. This select group of individuals is honored each year at the President’s Banquet held during the annual Conference and Show. New inductees are selected by current Hall of Fame members and enshrined in the Hall of Fame during a special presentation held at the President’s Banquet at the annual Conference and Show.
