I fail to see the need for such a fuss. Mr. Myers was just asking for volunteers, one in each state, to help coordinate NACHI national’s educational efforts. What the heck is the problem with everyone?
Mr. Myers is NACHI national’s education committe chairman.
He has done considerable work with regards to this job.
Many of those who oh, so speedily, ‘volunteered’ have not done a single thing that I am aware of. (To be fair, some have.)
Many are interested in being highly paid ‘education vendors’ and getting a whole heck of a lot of money for teaching CE to NACHI members. Whose interests are they attending to? The NACHI membership, or their own pockets.
There, I said it. Plain and clear and for all to see. Any shots, call or e-mail me. My phone number and e-amil are plain to everyone and I answer my own phone.
There are many agendas, but which one best serves the NACHI membership?
Is there a written policy? Joe F. seems to think there is, but a brief post on this board is not a policy. If this policy has worked so well, where are its results, its fruits?
A clear and written and public policy is needed and in the process of being created. To my knowledge (and, according to Mr. Bowman’s previous post, his) no such policy exists.
Of course, each state has its own needs and proceedures. Some states have no licensing and no requirements. Those states, and the members therein, have their own needs. Some states have licensing and have different requirements. I live in a license state and am using my talents to serve that need, but my work is also applicable to non-license states. I don’t see the problem.
The electrical course that Ken Demski, Russ Myers and I fashioned for Illinois is available to all of NACHI. It is applicable to all states. When presented to other, national, NACHI members who I respect, they thought it was very good. What is the problem? I am finishing a course on Structure as well, along with my brother (a 20+ year engineer) and a professor of engineering at Northwestern University. Just the final touches and polishing to be done. It will also be available to NACHI, all states and all members.
What is the problem?
We need, on the ground poeple, who will take the time and effort for help ALL NACHI members, each in their own state, to make these courses work in those stated, for those members.
I have not taken (in fact, I have refused) any money or remuneration for my efforts. Many have asked for the courses. Some, it has been given to, others , not.
The reason is that the course, and the other 36 hours of course material I have committed to do, is for the benifit of NACHI and all NACHI members.
Not for the pockets of education vendors.
There are those out there who are much better and experienced and home inspection than I am. There are some who are better at design of PowerPoint presentations and in writing ED booklets and in making up tests.
Where are they?
Are they using their talents to serve their fellow NACHI members?
Mr. Myers is putting out a call to NACHI members, who have talent in administrative matters, to step up and serve.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Kind of tells you a lot about those who object.

As always, hope this helps.
