How are you all doing??

What is your count? With all the high powered advertising being done, I sense that your numbers are not coming out right

Remember it is hard to BS a BSer

What are your numbers?

Are you trying to pay off losses from the last event?

If you must - regroup before things get worse

The main indicator is the mailing that I got today and that you are not maxed out with two days to go at the discount rate

What are the numbers and how many more do you need??

I really want to see these type of events continue in FL

Open disclosure is always the best way to solve a problem,

And don't say your don't have a problem when your do

Mr. Bell

Mr. Gordon has made a request (see his post)

Since there is no problem with the projections and the numbers at this time and everything else is OK, my post is totally out of line. There is no COE problem that I am aware of.

Now as to your post. I am not upset yet!

I just noted that there has been a lot of effort to get the word out including a three page mailer from NACHI which would indicate that the numbers were not at the projected point.

This observation is not something for me to get upset about

As you have stated there are three very professional people who run the chapter. They are trying to help Florida and to some extent all home inspectors in the USA. We are in good hands. I now have no worry as to how they are steering the good ship USS FLORIDA NACHI.

It seems that all issues are being professionally addressed and issues are one of the items that draw people to events such as we are having down here in Florida.

Keep up the good work - I hope classes get too big for one instructor and we can recruit you Mr. Bell. You sure have the education and background - Why not raise your hand and give it a try??

Again I am not upset

Nothing to be upset about

Have a good day

Looks like we have a Jim Bushart Jr in the making.

This is exactly what I thought Jim would bring to NACHI.

Just an FYI Richard,

The three guys that run the SE chapter always strive for more. That is why you see the push to advertise this event.

I am just wondering what has upset you that you would make such a post?

You guys love to hold others accountable but hate it when the same thing is done to you? I love it. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

Hang in there, Richard.

I would like to thank NACHI Central for sending out to all Florida Inspectors the upcoming events. This letter campaign was designed and executed flawlessly.

Any Chapter President interested in having this for your event, I highly recommend it.

Thank you to those who have registered!

Lets not blow on the fire so to speak

I know that you were brought into something that was not your fight

In reality it is not a fight yet

I also know that I was called your son -- (Jr) This I will over look at the moment if you will also do

I also understand about calling people to standards -- right now all parties have addressed accountability of the numbers

Lets us all wish all parties the best and if we have any personal issues lets take them off line

If there are any pubic issues then lets get them on the table and on line. Open delscosuer is were it is at - be it the members in a chapter, the $$, the #

I am still not up set
