I agree with the leeway Nick G has given towards the misuse of the accreditation or designation Russell.
Let me explain.
InterNACHI is due diligent to its members.
They remind users of the accreditation or designation that it a copywriter first and foremost. That one must pay and meet certain criteria for the use of the CMI and its marketing use…
That being said.
Instead of punishing individuals for the misunderstanding or even further tuning to litigation to solve the infraction, positive social and most impotently “business courtesy’s” are meet.
The invitation to join INACHI is a must.
That is a simple and posative marketing strategy bar none Russell.
Once within the fold or fellowship they can inquire about said use of the destination.
I assume they are explained “in full”, too hold the rights to the CMI there are prerequisites to be meet; and yes one is a free.
Thus allowing others to join INACHI’s growing ranks and the designation can be marketed as siad along with membership ranks without intimidated.
A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR ALL PARTIES INVOLVED.
That is my interpretation on how INACHI and Nick handles any misunderstandings.
