Just a brief history for those newer to NACHI:
Years ago membership wanted to have more control over NACHI and complained that I was “too involved”. So we did everything we could do… including setting up committees for everything, launching local chapters and giving members full control over their chapters, spinning off some chapters as their own separate entities, creating a leadership, hiring staff, etc. I dropped out of the members-only section of the message board completely so members could discuss things without my influence. We bought key leadership their own cell phones. As Chair of the BOD for the non-profit, tax exempt corp NACHI Inc., I issued a grand total of zero directives in the past 5 years. I have barely given my opinion on issues, much less direction. I turned over accounting to a CPA and spun off or signed over everything else that I could. I became solely staff, head of staff, but staff nonetheless. Recently I even hired outside management consultants. At one point, before Blaine ordered me to drop the title, I gave myself the title of Janitor to emphasize my desire and commitment to be merely staff.
I understand that some of you have been at odds with each other lately over nothing staff can help you with. I will remind you what I said years ago regarding this situation… be careful what you wish for… you might get it. So you all work it out, preferrably without involving me (even by mentioning my name). You got your wish.
Now let me have my wish and leave me out of it please.
