I can't tell you how many emails I've gotten over the years that say "I just had an argument with so and so on the message board and if this is the type of person you permit to join NACHI, then I quit." I wait a few days... and they email me saying "please disregard my last email... I love NACHI."
There are only 14 members in the history of NACHI who actually quit, most of them are Canadians who were instructed to. Three were ASHI members who did it to create some sort of big publicity stunt (as if that would slow us down??? we had 12 join this evening). We have the highest retention rate of any trade association in the world (well over 99%)... not just of home inspection associations... but of all trade associations in the world that ever existed. That is amazing considering the independent mindedness of home inspectors (many working alone for years).
I much prefer email to private messages.
