I got this mail this morning, and wondered “whats up with this?” :wha?:
Anyone else get this?
"Dear InterNACHI Member,
This message is to inform you that beginning January 1, 2008, Compass ID Card Services will no longer be printing cards for InterNACHI.
Email sent to the “idcards” address will no longer be downloaded and read by us.
Please direct any questions regarding your card to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many do not even Have a INACHI ID card .
They are only good for one year and should be renewed .
Mine is also out of date .
Be interesting to see what INACHI says .
I have sent this to Fastreply and will post any reply.
In house is a good idea, if you have the staff, time and payroll. With 10,000 members that would be about 275 cards per day 365 days a year. I would say that is going to be one busy staff person, just printing and mailing membership cards.
I’m betting that the relationship with Compass ID Services with South for some reason. It has been my experience that most business to business relationships fail due to some financial disagreement.
I think it was financial, indirectly. I don’t think they charged us enough (kind of why we subbed it out to them, something we normally don’t do). Then their printer (it takes a special printer) died. The printers cost about $6K. I bought one this morning for our own use.
Richard, I like your idea, but I think we were going to integrate it all into www.nachi.org/profileintro.htm and then maybe at some point allow the member to choose to show his/her pic on our new search sites.
I think it is a great idea I have my own laminar and could do mine and any others in our chapter .
Even then for a member to take to a local print shop for lamination would not cost more then a buck.
Do you not think they could do the same thing now .
Can you imagine the humiliation of being caught with ID that was phony .
If I ever did some thing like that and got caught .
No way could I ever face some one again .
We have no control over criminals ,they are always around .
Do things correctly and let the rest rot.
Yes I guess you are correct.
Unfortunately the bad guys do not know this and they keep turning out Good Counterfeit money every day.
I go through life trusting every one ,as there is no way to defeat the crooks.
