The Illinois State Auctioneers Association (ISAA) was formed by a group of successful businessmen who knew that in order to provide a better business environment for themselves and strengthen their share of the auction market, they needed to work together. Their purpose was to speak with one voice for the auction industry of the State of Illinois, and in the process obtain tools to help them make sound and profitable decisions in their auction business and promote the auction method of marketing to the general public. For over 50 years, the ISAA has been one of the best investments its members have made. ISAA is divided into 3 Regions; North, Central and South.  The regions are comprised of 10 districts. Governors from each region are elected by the membership at the Annual Meeting of the Membership.
