Serving on the NRC’s Auction Committee gives me the opportunity to shape one of the industry’s most worthwhile events. It benefits everyone involved: sellers disposing of unneeded assets and buyers finding needed equipment. The industry benefits too because the proceeds go toward developing safety training resources for contractors.
