Just thinking out loud here and looking for some input. As many trade associations have their own political actions committees that look out for proposed legislation and laws that may be harmful to their membership, why can’t NACHI develop a Political Action Committee that’s purpose is to inform and organize the membership to rally against any laws or legislation that may be harmful to our profession? We know that NACHI has the data base to be able to quickly reach out to the membership in any given State to inform them of potentially harmful legislation. Why not leverage that data base to send out a “call to action” -(just like the realtors and other professional associations do) when harmful legislation pops up in any given state? Here in Florida, we are constantly fighting off special interests who introduce harmful legislation every year to try and kill the home inspection profession. It would be very helpful to have our association supporting us in fighting off harmful legislation.
Looking for some support and meaningful discussion. I believe that we could leverage NACHI’s resources (data base) to be a formidable advocate for our profession in the legislative arena.
