It has come to my attention that our chapter is looking into hiring another lobbyist and I want each and every Home Inspector to have a voice in what is accomplished in this arena.
I don’t want a special 4 or 5 to make decisions for us. I want the great minds that are out there to give us input to think about, direction you want to see the profession go and maybe even a 1-3-5 year plan.
One is to try and get GC’s to have the same treatment as far as wind mitigation goes and not be able to hire employees to perform these inspections and work under their license.
I have heard people say we should not take on the Realtors and Construction board, but then who do you take on the cosmetology school?
Presently we wait for someone to stick it in our backside then rush and react. To me that is a losers game, instead the thought process was to get OUR wants and NEEDS in front of the legislation and let others play defense.
We have about 10,000 inspectors and we get tossed around like a rag doll. The only reason this happens is because we let it happen. You think 10,000 inspectors is bad? Wait until all contractors get to inspect and dont need a Home Inspector license. Think its not coming? Guess again.
Think the repair clause will get put back into the law? Try again, it will get put into law on a stupid BS amendment that the mold assessors and remediators got pushed through on. By the way, how did that happen?
It is YOUR profession and we WANT and need your input. The lack of ideas and input will force others to make decisions for you.
So please give us info and if you want to keep it on the DL, the private message me here…
