All included, inspectors, teachers, inspection associations and schools are all doing what we do to make money (a living). It is the true motivation for most. If someone is not making money inspecting and they can make money teaching or running an association, that is they path open to them.
In the long run, I think that making a decision to do something and sticking to it with perseverance and determination is more beneficial.
For many, these are very hard times and it is my perspective to respect peoples decisions to pursue what they think is best for them.
In time, everyone either succeeds or fails at what they choose to do. Those who succeed, stick with what works for them and grow. For those who fail, they move on to something else. And, from time to time, opportunities are presented that can not be passed up.
If you are a good inspector, then be an inspector. If you are a good teacher, then teach. If you are good at both, do both and so on. Do what works for you without judgement of others.
The rest is politics, power and control over others…
