The way I see it, InterNACHI can do one of three things.
1) It can ride the coat-tails of NACHI offering the for the most part the same benefits as NACHI. Drawing on NACHI’s already existing vendor connection for discounts, using NACHI’s printing presses, etc. So with no history, then what benefit would InterNACHI provide over NACHI? Would InterNACHI have to kick back to NACHI money for the use of some of its resouces?
2) It can be run total separately from NACHI offering unique benefits which are specifically designed for international members that are not available from NACHI. So what are some of the ideas for these benifits?
My understanding is that in the early years of NACHI; Nick and his unorthodox but effecting marketing skills and driving force was the one of the two main reasons NACHI succeeded and grew. What powerful skill set does the leadership of InterNACHI have? The other main reason for NACHI’s success is active member involvement. As Nick likes to put it “NACHI is a member-driven organization”. So far I have seen no indication of that in the proposed InterNACHI. Is InterNACHI to be run from the top->down or from the Bottom->up?
Canadian members currently make up 93% of all NACHI’s international members. What unique and specific programs are being developed for them? What input or influence has InterNACHI had on shaping the National Certification in Canada?
How do (or will) InterNACHI’s financial resources compare to that of NACHI’s? Will NACHI be contributing? How much? For how long?
3) It can run as a combination of the two. Drawing on established NACHI programs as well as creating programs that are unique. If this is the case then most of the questions in 1) and 2) are still very relevant.
I do not understand this need for secrecy. Why individual requests/responses via email vs. public announcement? Are the responses individually tailored? For what purpose?
