We even sent them our membership numbers along with signed affidavits. They keep claiming that InterNACHI isn’t the largest. I guess their members like spending money on defense attorneys. We’re suing a bunch of them and their webmasters.

By its wording, ASHI is providing a code of ethics and inspection standard for the profession … not simply its members.
This could be an acknowledgement that there are inspectors who are not members of ASHI (including many members of NACHI) who publish that they inspect by ASHI’s standard … thereby reinforcing it as an industry standard and not “association” specific.
It could also take into account that, today, many inspectors who belong to any association will often belong to more than one.
Looks like the National site just gave up their claim to being “Oldest and largest professional organization for home inspectors in North America” (still in Google’s cache as of now) for the puffery based claim of being “North America’s oldest and most respected professional society of home inspectors”
Nick, How long has interNACHI been the largest home inspector association? This isn’t exactly a new development is it? Hasn’t interNACHI been the largest home inspector association for some time now?
For at least 5 years. We’re going to make examples of a few unlucky (and soon to be broke) ASHI members who have been false advertising by claiming to be members of the largest home inspection association (InterNACHI).
Frivolous lawsuits are wrong … no matter who files them, IMO; however it will be interesting to see how warm of a reception your partner and your valued NACHI member, Thornberry, gets as he represents NACHI, you and his gimmicks at the next ASHI convention.
At first, I thought this was similar to a silly boy’s locker room argument about who is biggest. But then my staffers chimed in. Some of my staffers have worked for InterNACHI since they were children. They worked their entire adult lives to make InterNACHI the biggest and the best. They take pride in working evenings, weekends, and holidays. It isn’t just a job to them. Despite ASHI having a 20-year head start… those staffers helped InterNACHI win. It’s like winning the Gold Medal in the Olympics for some of them. They work really, really hard for members and we have to defend their honor.
