I’m thrilled to see everyone so willing to help us!
As for the employment opportunities section:
NACHI.org is constantly changing -- we're adding new sections to the website, new test questions, new FAQ's, and more. Every once in a while, Nick or I (the only two with access to NACHI.org admin, or the NIE questions) will type something wrong. If it's a spelling mistake, we often catch it (and the new spell checker will do even more so), but when I type "I like pizza rather that
hoagies," it doesn't realized that "that" should be "than." NACHI Pays
is a way for you guys to help us out, get involved, and make a little money. I personally think that Nick went a little overboard with it, but I think that it does what it's meant to do.
If you feel that the money should be going somewhere else, just let us know in the e-mail.
As for further member participation:
I'd love to see everyone get more involved. I think that this message board is a good starting place. Maybe I can add a chatroom, and we can schedule occasional meetings online. The NACHI conference will, I hope, be another place to start some major projects.
Let's brainstorm on what would be the most helpful way to organize via the web (due to the fact that we're from all over the country). Do we want a chat room, a private message board, etc.? Do we want an online calendar to post meetings, deadlines, etc.?
If anyone wants to start a project of their own (ie. some sort of promotional effort), I can set up a private forum on these boards that only participants of the project can view/post. That way you can discuss things without everyone watching.
And if you have some other scheme -- let me know. There's a lot you can do on the internet nowadays, so don't be afraid to ask if something's possible. I might say 'no,' but it's worth a shot.
