Join International Trade Council ? What for? Are there any benefits?

Hello fellow HI’s. I received this email and was wondering if anyone has experience with this and is it worth the $10 for 2022 and then $400 after that.

Dear Arne Kluge

In follow-on from my previous email to Integrity Home Inspection Services/

It is the honor of the Board of Directors of the (International Trade Council) to to invite Integrity Home Inspection Services to join our membership roster for 2022-2023.

The International Trade Council is a voluntary, non-profit partnership of government trade agencies, chambers of commerce, business and professional people working together towards a common goal — to build a healthy economy and to improve the quality of life in our communities. The business of the Council is to enable its members to do together what they might not be able to do individually.

With 79 constitutent international government trade and investment agency members coming from every continent, 418 national (and industry vertical) chambers of commerce members, and 29,000+ corporate members of all sizes spread across 176 countries - the Council has supported the business community since 1954 and it encourages new business to join its ranks and continue its well-respected programs.

As a new constituent, the Council would like to offer Integrity Home Inspection Services a 1 year membership at a highly-subsidized price of only $10 USD / year.

This is a government-subsidized price, and the offer is limited in time and only available now. (The usual membership fee is $400 USD / Year)

Some reasons why Integrity Home Inspection Services may consider to join the Council:

MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES: Increase the visibility of Integrity Home Inspection Services through the ITC’s website, social networking platform, social media and events. We can also work to promote your own events and host webinars and conferences for you at no extra cost.

I’d be hard to imagine this group could provide more or better exposure than your local chamber of commerce. International trade to me suggest either buying or selling stuff (as opposed to services) through commercial trade ports which is kinda outside the scope of most home inspections.

Just a cursory goggle search shows that it is easy to confuse this group with the International Trade Commission which would be a mistake, this fact alone gives a sketchy feel and I would need face time with other members prior to signing on.

Good luck.

Thanks Joseph!
Good points made.
