Some of the other boards, you can ask questions, but you feel inferior with some of the answers.
My advise is to join one, of course I recommend NACHI, but just one until you get established. NACHI will get you the most marketing bang for your buck - web presence, mouse pad promotion, e-mail to agents, etc. AS SOON as you join. Again, as soon as you join.
I recommend you use the money that you were going to use for joining other associations for marketing your business and then as you become established, join other organizations. For the organizations that require a minimum # of inspections to become members, I believe that any that you do even before you are a member count, but I am not sure of that.
Welcome to the boards and good luck.
