The NACHI guys manning the booth walked around and checked out all the other booths, including those of the two other groups.
They were both kind of condecending, believeing that we were beneath them. We mentioned our plans for a complete suite of state approved CE classes that NACHI members (regular chapter members of any Illinois NACHI Chapter) could attend for only the lunch money. This perled up some ears.
Around here, most CE courses are offered through the other associations, are pretty costly ($195 for 6 hours, our state requires 12 hours for each 2 yerar license term), and these offered courses are real snorers, much easier than most pre-licensing courses.
In any case, I also got to talk to a couple of people from the state agency that approves CE courses and also mentioned our plans. They said that they hoped that the courses would be challanging, and I agreed whole heartedly! They said that they would look forward to our submitting them.
Funny, some of the other association guys came to our booth, after their booth manning shifts were over, and asked us all about the courses.
Education is the key!
