Most Recent HOF Inductee:
The 55th annual CAA Convention closed with the very deserving induction of auctioneer Walt Partridge into the CAA Hall of Fame. Walt is an explosives expert who embarked on auctioneering as a second career. He set out to master this new career with enthusiasm and dedication and his work ethic served him well as he learned all positions of the trade to become the Colorado State Champion Auctioneer in 2005. Walt primarily works as a contract auctioneer, allowing many CAA members the privilege of working with him. From personal experience, Walt is not only fun to work with, but a consummate professional.
Walt has also dedicated countless hours to the Colorado Auctioneers Association. He served the CAA as president in 2007 and 2008, and has been a Board member & Treasurer for many years – always going the extra mile for the good of the CAA. Walt’s knowledge and understanding of the CAA bylaws and his natural sense of fair play is sought out on a regular basis during board meetings; Walt genuinely believes in the organization. As a member of the board, he is always one of the first to volunteer for anything that needs to be done.
He also supports the CAA with more than his presence at meetings & events. If he isn’t helping someone, you’ll find him throwing horse shoes at the picnic or bidding at one of the auctions. If you don’t know Walt, take a minute or two at the next CAA event and talk with him. Chances are, he will be there and he’s always glad to share.
The CAA is proud to present Walt with this prestigious honor.
