I think what he’s afraid of is possibly losing an income stream if ASHI continues to get bashed by NACHI members. To my knowledge and experience, he has never edited or deleted any of my posts, and I can tell you that I am VERY pro-NACHI. My opinions on ASHI are stinging, valid, and to the point.
Erby's point is that the PHIC/Joe Kelly/ASHI issues are not well known outside of PA
. When we bitch and moan about it, the folks who don't know what it's about (or don't care), tune-out. In fact, they may get the impression that PHIC/ASHI may be right about NACHI. Although it's not, where can a member or visitor go to get te truth about the AG's stance on the matter; the PA Realtor's view on the matter; the legislature's response; etc. ? We need to keep the PA issues, though very valid, as a separate issue. Perhaps under "State and Local Licensing"
monikers. My belief is that ASHI's next step, if not successful at the State level, is to attack the local and county legislators to pass local laws "under the radar". This tact is far more dangerous to the industry as a whole. To the PA issue, perhaps Kelly, et al , DID contact other NACHI members. Why not solicit a response via e-mail targeting our membership?
I, for one, am absolutely FOR exposing the PHIC for what was attempted. Why not create a thread just for that
? LEt's use it to keep the membership posted as to what is going on (like the NACHI lawsuit).
Erby's observations as to the progress of NACHI has been very positive. I am a NACHI bigot. Have been since I first joined
, primarily for the earthy tone of the folks I spoke to at the time. We are the real-deal. Our members are the real deal. Nice folks. Willing to help. Knowledgable. Sometimes a bit opinionated (me too, Joe). But these are GOOD
things. Our forum is open to all. Not everyone's is. And, most importantly, and despite the reputation Nick has with some folks, he has made some absolutely TREMENDOUS
strides in providing information and educational materials to members. Now THAT'S something to crow about!
But, in the end, we just need to get the word out that we are not JUST a PA HI org. I know we're more than that. We need to do a much better job of projecting that image
. This board is dedicated to the free and open exchange of ideas and information. Within, FREE SPEACH REIGNS!
I don't think than anyone is looking to stop that freedom.
