I got this and thought it well written, polite, BUT to the point.
The top portion is from Paul Romer (a home inspector in St. Joseph, MO) in response to a solicitation for dues $$$$ from the new President of the KAREI group in Wichita that Jeff Barnes set up (Kansas Association of Real Estate Inspectors). KAREI tells everyone they represent ALL home inspectors in Kansas and are the VOICE to the legislature AND Realtors for ALL Kansas home inspectors.
As we all know - KAREI was formed by Wichita ASHI; their Board and Officers are ASHI; their membership is 90%-95% ASHI.
The bottom part of the attachment is the KAREI request for $$$$$
For those that don’t know, Paul Romer is a 12-15 year ASHI member; a past NATIONAL Board of Director for ASHI; one of the 5 founding members of the Midwest Pro-ASHI Chapter; and served as either an officer or on various committees for both the Midwest Pro-ASHI Chapter and the Great Plains ASHI Chapter.
I think Paul is on the same page with many of us, he just vocalized it better. When the HI Bill came up, the KAREI group tried to totally run the show and kept the other inspection associations and groups and their leadership out of everything up front , so now …
