I agree Roy, Brian comes on a little strong at times and he does makes sense other times depending on the subject. But most of the time he comes on making others feel inferior which is not good for an Association trying to help all.
This Association is the biggest and is all so the biggest in providing educational courses and help to make us all better home inspectors.
I became a CMI because of the school of hard Knox and thousands of hours spent with US Government Inspections 25 years ago.
I would not be where I am today, without the help of my constituents of this Organization and the help they can provide.
Stop, Look, and Listen, has different meanings to me than most that think it is because it is a train crossing.
It could be that the minute you think you know it all like Brian, someone new to the Association has come along and taught you something new.
One is never to old to learn something new. And no one knows it all.
It is how it is conveyed, and how it it appreciated that someone just showed you something you never saw before.
We all come from different geographic areas and everybody was taught or learned in different ways. What works for one, might not for the other.
It appears that the ones bashing and non-members are always here for a reason, either to learn themselves, take advantage of all the free education courses, or try to prove to others that they are king of Home Inspections.
Visit one of the message boards of I. News and see what I mean. You can’t get a word in without being corrected by something out of a text book.
Text books are a great recourse, but after 45 years in building construction like myself, they are not always correct due to field variables that are not thought of or compensated for.
The key to success is to work together and share the experience to make you a better Home Inspector.
Together as a team we become stronger and better.
By yourself, you fall down and stay down, because there will be no one to help you up.
I am proud to display my Logo for CMI, I worked for it and earned it as others did.
Doesn’t mean we are the best, we are the best and will be on our way to be the best of the best by helping each other as a team.
