Ok here are some choices of the idea that is going around.
It has been mentioned that we need a board to represent our profession in Tallahassee and we have given Wayne Bertch the fact finding mission to see what happens. Here are some of the ideas and the way I see them.
Board of ONLY Home Inspectors. No other people, professions allowed. This would make it a home inspection only personel. To me personally the downside is that we look to “into ourselves” and cocky. If we bring others in we can make allies in the legislative branch and hopefully get some clout or at least some friends.
Board with other professions but there will always be a MAJORITY of home inspectors. But the thoughts were to bring other ideas and input in. Like 5 inspectors and one Realtor, One consumer, One Lawyer. Once again it is to bring in other ideas and to allow friendship to take root and then maybe who knows our professions can get on other boards…
Simple and easy
Remember with a board how one is decided to represent us has not been determined. Board members can become self serving and try to make rules that hinders their competition. But also remember right now one guy who has no idea decides what happens to our profession. Also there will be others looking to make “our” board, like I am sure the Realtors would love to set up and run the “Home Inspectors” board.
I see the good and bad in it. This thread is NOT to determine who will be your representative but just trying to get the vibe of the members to see if a board is wanted at all and to also get some of that awesome input and insight I always get. What say you?
As always getting the information to you so I can properly represent you.
Thanks in advance.
