LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Emerging from a competitive field of 74 contestants, Jason L. Miller, CAI, of Quaker City, Ohio, was crowned winner of the men’s National Auctioneers Association 27th International Auctioneer Championship, which took place July 11 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville.


Miller received a $5,000 cash award, trophy and championship ring for his winning efforts through the preliminary bid-calling round, an interview round and a final round of bid-calling that included the top 15 men and seven women. He now claims the right to be known as one of the best auctioneers in the world.

“Dreams do come true,” said Miller, who competed in his eighth IAC.

“I’ve chased this for so long, but it’s not even about the trophy. It’s about the association, the friendships. These guys who I competed with today, not against, are my dear friends for life, and I love them all.”

Miller recently helped establish the new Cambridge, Ohio, office for Kaufman Realty and Auctions.

Miller’s win gives the state of Ohio three IAC championships in the past four years and six total IAC men’s and women’s champions.

Ohio is tied with Texas for the most IAC Champions out of any one state.


The IAC was conducted as part of the NAA’s 65th annual International Auctioneers Conference and Show, which took place in Louisville July 8-12.
