So as to not mess Jay thread I am posting this over here
Yes, Jay I did read over on your side of the fence - still questions like when are the next meetings. - Will NACHI be paying for your gas? What about mine?? If you are marching as per orders from above then we should - otherwise you speak for you and not us. Same with Garry. Like what if you have a car accident while on a NACHI mission?
On February 2nd, 2005, President Bush addressed our great nation and in his State Of The Union speech said "To make our economy stronger and more competitive, America must reward, not punish, the efforts and dreams of entrepreneurs. Small business is the path of advancement, especially for women and minorities, so we must free small businesses from needless regulation and protect honest job-creators"
We are getting more questions than answers.
We must take a proctored exam once or once a year? This is for all new NACHI'ers or all NACHI?
There are firms that do do this for free. Trust me I have checked.
Only one person of note had a problem with the old one - the Gov -
With the support that it had the way it was it seems like a no brainer to over ride his veto it the bill were to be introduced again.
Number of inspections
Why the H*** does any bill have to require the exact # of inspections that another org has as their requirement for full membership?
There is at least one ON LINE school that sells a HI course. Also more than one higher education institution offers accredited online education. Knowledge is knowledge no matter how we obtain it. Just so we can pass the test. I have taken more than one college course when I showed once once for the final and maybe for very few other classes and got FULL CREDIT hrs. -- My point - lets get modern and allow the ed part (CE included) to be on line - time and big $$ are at stake here.
Statement of qualifications
This was in the old bill and does one thing only - Makes it hard for the new HI no matter how good he is to start a business. I can think of no other industry where someone is required to state in writing years or # of jobs. This protects the Sr HI not the public. This is over the edge.
I am getting burned out. We see the same people over and over again making posts. I would hope that some other have thoughts on these issues and the people who are trying to get there personal agendas passed. Nick is on the board of an org that has a position paper out on this subject. Jay has been blessed from higher up but his scope of work is not clear to me. He also has "inside info' that can't be made public perhaps because it would hurt NACHI's agenda. Gerry goes to the workshop as an observer (I hope NACHI paid his gas) based on who's marching orders. He reports to Jay?
Mr. Bell seems to know what is going on but says nothing.
Key players are members of other orgs. that might have different views.
Change the rules
JUST LIKE MAB --- YOU MUST NOT BE A MEMBER OF ANOTHER COMPETING ORG OR a$%
. TO REP US IN AREAS WHERE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST MIGHT EXIST.
LETS HEAR FROM SOME NEW PEOPLE WITH SOME NEW IDEAS
