Event Postponement Annoucement
We regret to inform you that the NAVA Propertymark Spring Forum and Novice Auctioneer competition will be postponed until later this year.
We have not taken this decision lightly but are doing so in the best interests of our members and at the request of the incoming President, Trevor Palethorpe FNAVA. The NAVA Propertymark committee is undergoing changes following Paul Bridgeman PPNAVA stepping down as President. Propertymark is firmly committed to providing continuing professional development events and training to the auctioneering and valuation sector going forwards and we look forward to revealing an exciting new look event with additional investment which will be shaped in coordination with the NAVA Propertymark Committee.
Delegates who have already booked will be contacted with a full refund. We will keep members updated as to plans for the next NAVA Propertymark Forum and Novice Auctioneer competition, as soon as possible.
