I would like for us to give more thought to helping individual members in their own market. Toward that end I think we should do what we can to help our local chapters.
I am proposing that we change the current member ranking formula (which is mostly random but with a bias that favors the least clicked-thru'd member's contact info in an attempt to achieve parity) for our two main lead generators: www.FindanInspector.US and www.InspectorSEEK.com .
The aforementioned lead generators are now (according to Amazon.com's Alexa.com) the 2 most active in the industry, are now both in the top 10 of all inspection-related sites http://www.nachi.org/alexasitecomparison.htm , and are getting millions of consumer hits a month.
I propose that local chapter heads be able to submit their active member list so that members that attend and support local chapters come up first in our lead generating search rankings.
This would do no harm to members who don't have a nearby local chapter as there would be no competing local chapter members submitted for that area.
It would reward our more locally active members and provide additional incentive for members to form their own local chapters http://www.nachi.org/form.htm
Just thinking out loud.
I much prefer email to private messages.
