I don’t understand why you will be discussing the “forthcoming” client fidelity program.
While NACHI may be hosting it, it is not a NACHI program and the idea was hatched a few short days ago.
One of the things Nathan has to understand is that NACHI management does not control it. It is intended to be self-policing, pretty much, but if an inspector does not conduct his business in a way which is compliant with the program, then they may not use the logo.
I’m assuming it will be out by then and since it is an inspection industry thing… why not discuss it with Nathan? We might discuss the weather too (particularly if members don’t suggest any other topics on this thread).
Thornberry’s opinions about a pledge being taken by home inspectors not to sell him their clients data to him is not only fluid … changing from one of his posts to the next … but is simply irrelevant to anyone but him.
Neither Nick or Thornberry can speak on the program with any degree of authority. I agree, Joe.
I can see why Thornberry would want to add this to his infomercial … but I don’t see why Nick would feel the need to add any implied support for whatever Thornberry’s opinion will be on it the day of the commercial.
Now that this has come to light there should be a provision within “The Pledge” to opt out. Those of who are serious in regards to client privacy should be able to leave if the program is overrun with posers.
If “The Pledge” is co-opted I’ll not be deterred, no one owns a trademark on the ability for an independent home inspector to make a pledge of fidelity to their clients, I’ll simply go it alone as it ever was.
Jim, you don’t actually expect an inspector to wade through 10,000 posts about Nathan Thornberry, do you? This video distills everything and lets members actually watch Nathan’s responses to THEIR OWN questions. Nathan can answer them directly and succinctly. He can slither around and avoid them during the interview. Or he can walk off the set. Regardless of what he does, members will be free to make their own assessments of this vendor after seeing him actually respond in person on video.
This pledge is for all home inspectors without regard to association. In light of Nick’s program to allow Thornberry to misrepresent it with prescreened questions in a rehearsed “interview” … Joe will be making an announcement regarding NACHI’s hosting of it very soon. They can express any opinions they wish in their commercial.
Nathan, can you see any way for confidential client information gathered by a home inspector ending up in the hands of a repair contractor by a means that you have anything to do with, even indirectly or inadvertently?
