New Jersey NACHI Announcements

I have attached a copy of a message sent to all NJ NACHI members and most NACHI members in New Jersey below. We are also posting it here to keep everyone up to date and to let everyone know that we are still active in New Jersey and still working to increase our presence on the ground (so to speak). We have also partnered with ESA for an upcoming advanced mold seminar, and will post details for a NACHI discount for anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity.

This is the message broadcast yesterday:

Those of you at our June meeting know that after two and a half years of tireless work and ceaseless efforts on our behalf, and on behalf of all aspiring home inspectors in New Jersey, Phill Hinman has resigned his position as president of NJ NACHI. Phil is taking a much needed break from this position to concentrate on growing his business, improving his golf and raquetball games, and to pursue other interests. While no one can fill the shoes he leaves open, as NJ NACHI Vice President I will be filling the role of President as we move forward.

NJ NACHI remains committed to helping all of you grow your business and to helping you grow as inspectors. We remain committed to striving toward the highest standards of the industry. We wish to lead the way to building the standards of the profession of a whole in whatever we do or say, and view the bashing of business competitors or other professional organizations as lowering the perception of the industry as a whole. Let’s lead the way forward as examples of the highest levels of professionalism.

Phil will remain active in NJ NACHI taking over my role in organizing continuing professional education and, as always, helping with legislative affairs.

So while we wish he could remain President, we won;t miss him as he will continue to be active in the organization.

For this upcoming fall we have some exciting developments. NJ NACHI will be sponsoring both Northern and Southern New Jersey meetings with CEU’s to better serve the needs of New Jersey Home Inspectors. Under current consideration are locations in Medford and Bloomfield. The Southern division will meet on September 12, 2006 (the 2nd Tuesday fo the month thereafter) and the Northern Division on September 28 (the last Thursday of the month thereafter).

On October 21 (Saturday) NJ NACHI will be sponsoring a full day seminar on inspecting new construction - a hot topic in New Jersey, and getting hotter! The format envisioned is a classroom session and staged inspection sessions at new homes at stage of construction to demonstrate the various phased construction inspections. This will be a unique and valuable opportunity that no inspector or prospective inspector willwant to miss! Mark your calendars and stay tuned for futher updates.

August 11 and 12 ESA is offering an in depth mold inspection seminar in Cherry Hill at a very attractive price, but through NJ NACHI you can attend at an even lower price. The details for enrollment will follow in a seperate email.

Look for announcements regarding furthe CEU opportunities to come in the fall, and information on ways to grow our businesses.

NJ NACHI remains unique in helping grow your business, aid in marketing, and helping improve your professional skills and the standards of the industry as a whole!

See you all in the fall!
