Sid Miedema (CEO), along with his two sons, attend CAI Training this Spring

Sid Miedema, Jordan Miedema, and Jeremy Miedema are successful auctioneers who have recently continued their education by attending the National Auctioneer’s Association (NAA) and the Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI) classes. The CAI is a three-year program that takes place annually at Indiana University and is an intensive program that focuses on the business aspects of the auction industry, rather than on a particular asset class.

As experienced auction professionals, Sid, Jordan, and Jeremy understand the importance of staying up-to-date with industry trends and expanding their knowledge. The CAI program is different from other designations offered by NAA, as it is a comprehensive program that covers all aspects of the auction business. Attendees who complete the program will have a solid foundation in auction theory and practice, as well as a strong understanding of business planning and management.

By attending CAI I, II, and III in successive years, Sid, Jordan, and Jeremy are positioning themselves as leaders in the auction industry. They will gain valuable insights into best practices, industry trends, and business strategy, all of which will help them better serve their clients. The CAI program is a mark of excellence in the auction industry, and completing it will undoubtedly increase their credibility and competitiveness in the marketplace.

Overall, Sid Miedema, Jordan Miedema, and Jeremy Miedema’s commitment to furthering their education demonstrates their dedication to providing the highest level of service to their clients. By attending the CAI program, they are investing in themselves and their business, and positioning themselves for long-term success in the auction industry.
