Paying too much for E&O? NACHI members get huge discounts on E&O insurance. Our insurer, AIG, has an A.M.Best rating of A++ superior, the highest rating, enjoyed by only 6.7% of all insurers! Because of the unique professionalism and expertise of the NACHI membership, we were able to negotiate improved terms and a substantial discount for this important coverage. This is a proprietary product, available exclusively to NACHI members, through our exclusive Broker, Towers Perrin and sold through a portal right on NACHI?s website. They gave this discount exclusively to NACHI members because NACHI members are the best inspectors in the world and deserve to pay much less than non-members. Visit www.nachi.org/eo for more information.


The Western PA NACHI Chapter meeting is coming up in Pittsburgh on July 28. Everyone is welcome. You need not be a member of NACHI to attend. Our speakers will be our attorney Brad Dornish on limiting liability, Chapter President Larry Ott on mold inspections, Chapter V.P. Dave Seaholm on septic system dye testing and Herman Layman of U.S. Micro Solutions on advanced indoor environmental quality inspections. Our W.PA Chapter meets every month. Visit http://www.wpanachi.org for more information.

PHIC loses in court again. NACHI wins! PHIC, the fake organization that has been scamming our fellow home inspectors out of mentoring fees, had to stop lying about NACHI. In a June 13, 2005 ruling, Judge Thomas G. Gavin struck down PHIC. His ruling ended with the following words ?Finally, there is no indication that Plaintiffs (PHIC and Joe Kelly) are authorized to enforce the Home Inspection Law.? Visit www.nachi.org/phicscam for more information.

Pennsylvania is now NACHI?s second strongest market. NACHI has 6 local PA chapters and 572 members in Pennsylvania. This makes Pennsylvania NACHI the second largest state in terms of membership behind only Florida which has 926 NACHI members. Go PA NACHI!

Western Pennsylvania inspectors, come on over to Ohio! NACHI?s Ohio State Chapter invites you to join them for a 2-day educational event in Columbus on August 20-21. Their last meeting in April was standing room only and featured 13 speakers and 25 home inspection vendors. Visit www.OHnachi.org for more information.

Pennsylvania State home inspection registration legislation. NACHI is pushing through legislation in Pennsylvania nearly identical to the legislation we had enacted into law recently in North Dakota, a state which uses NACHI?s Inspector Examination.

Pennsylvania inspectors can attend the largest inspection event of the year for free. Each year, NACHI allows members of one state to attend its national convention for free. This year NACHI has chosen Pennsylvania. All Pennsylvania inspectors (not just NACHI members) are invited to the NACHI convention in Orlando, Florida, February 4-8, 2006, at no charge. Last year we had 850 inspectors in attendance, 6 running classes providing three full days of continuing education and 45 industry vendors. For 2006 we will have 105 vendors and over 2,500 inspectors in attendance. NACHI and PRO-Lab will be giving out a free 2006 F-150 pickup truck to a NACHI member. Don?t miss it. Visit www.nachi.org/convention2006 for more information.

Nick,

Can you paraphrase the legislation that NACHI is trying to push through? Is the intent for this to be true Licensing, or will it just continue to be a Regulation, as now exists? How close is this to actually coming about?

Also, I appreciated the entire PA update. Thanks!
