Is OAHI/CAHPI about to implode?
I’ve just received a message from a candidate member who has been demoted to applicant status because the OAHI board of education stated that the courses at Humber College are no longer valid. Yet when you check the OAHI website it states categorically that they are.
Then I have another senior member of the OAHI team send me an email from Pam Sayne that suggests OAHI are and have been for some time in contravention of the Act that created them, yet never told anyone. Then she suggests that they are now a division of CAHPI and always have been suggesting that the Act was only given to OAHI because of this. They suggest that the reason for all of this is that it gives members the member benefit of being able to use the CAHPI SoP. (Member benefit!! come on since when has a Standard of Practice been a member benefit, it is a membership requirement!)
These are the associations that have proclaimed themselves to be high and mightier that all else yet they seem to be a shambles of indecision, with self-serving internally politically motivated policies that have no real direction for the associations or the members offering nothing but confusion to the home inspection profession and consumer alike yet seemingly lining their own pockets at the expense of hard pressed inspectors.
Lets see where this thread goes.
