I’ve been asked to help with an independent government investigation of Arizona’s Board of Technical Registration. All I have is rumors to offer and some of them seem far-fetched. Can anyone help me here?
Is it true that the board is made up solely of ASHI members and that they keep non-ASHI members off the board?
Is it true that the board hinders competition? How?
Is it true that the head of an ASHI Chapter became an AZ employee associated connected with the board?
Is it true that a board member demanded and accepted payment for parallel inspections from an applicant to the board on which he sits?
Is it is true that there is a board member who also runs a home inspection school that sells parallel inspections and has an indentured-servitude scheme going via this school? Is he still on the board?
Is it true that the board is harassing members of NACHI saying that they can't join NACHI until the are licensed or else will be fined $5,000.00?
Boards are supposed to be independent of the inspectors they license and this board should be considered innocent until proven guilty. I'm not accusing anyone of anything but some of these outside accusations if true are criminal and could lead to jail time. Abuse of office for profit is a crime. Anyway, just get me all the data so that I can pass it on to a higher authority. I'm out of the loop on this one now but all hell is breaking loose over this thing and I need help separating fact from rumor before I feel comfortable enough to pass it on.
Email me if you want to remain annonymous. Your name will not be used. I'll let you know what I learn as I learn it. It could be all just B.S. from some inspector who can't get licensed.
I much prefer email to private messages.
