Workshop and Celebration”, held at the Memorial Center in Libby, August 14th and 15th. Many were speakers and some were involved in active panel discussions. The main topics centered around the rebuilding of the Industrial Park in Libby.[/size]
Bruce and Judy Kirby of BJCC Inspections, representing NACHI (National Association of Certified Inspectors) and MAREI (Montana Association of Real Estate Inspectors), took the opportunity to talk with Senator Burns, during the BBQ, about the future of inspections in Montana and related legislation. One of the chief concerns in all discussions was raising the standards in construction practices and in building inspections through education and ethics.
NACHI Western States Director, Bruce Kirby, is devoted to protecting consumers through education and “raising the bar” for Inspectors. “Many Home Inspections become a public service due to their nature. For example, an old, but serviceable dwelling, requires a long and intense inspection together with a lengthy report. Often these homes are bought by a young couple starting out with little or no capitol. There is seldom a profit in these inspections but they are a necessity. No home, old or new, should be purchased without an inspection.”
