I just got this email from Mr. Paul Sabados, NACHI VP and Convention Coordinator. This is a first for both NACHI and HUD and the FL Dept. of Health. We have never had a Government agency at our convention and neither one of these great organizations have ever attended a National Home Inspection Association convention.
Congrats and nice job to Mr. Sabados.
I am pleased to announce that two large and important government
organizations have requested access and attendence to our National
Convention this year.
First, Mr. Mick Zelaska from the Dept of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) will be with us on Monday and Tuesday to explain and promote the HUD
inspection programs. The Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) within the
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is currently
recruiting qualified contract inspectors to inspect over 25,000 HUD-assisted
properties annually, in all 50 states and territories, including Puerto
Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Marianas Islands to ensure properly
maintained, safe and sanitary housing.
Anybody interested in partaking of these programs should visit with Mr.
Zelaska, he will be in the NACHI booth in the exhibit hall.
Radon and Indoor Air Quality
Bureau of Community Environmental Health
FL Department of Health
Will be on site from Sunday through the end of the session. She will be
administering the State Radon Proctured test. Any question regarding
Florida licensing laws should be directed to her. She will have literature
Both of these governmental offices have expressed great appreciation to
NACHI for allowing them to be present at this event and both are looking
forward to an on going relationship with NACHI and our inspectors. I am
asking all attendee’s to seek them out and give them a warm NACHI welcome.
