Questions of the Week September 19

(Daniel W. Levia, CMI, CCHI) #1

The Awards Committee, in their quest to get more members, especially new members, to participate in the weekly “Questions of the Week” competition, have decided to change it up a little this week by having a scavenger hunt. Five questions have been asked with the answers somewhere on the InterNACHI site.

As this is a replacement for the Questions of the Week, the following rules and limitations apply.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member’s winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winners will be limited to no more than 3 times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers
or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won the maximum for the Year.

First correct answers (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of “Now that you’ve had a Home Inspection Books” shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Good Luck!
