I agree with Jeff. If ASHI wants a cease-fire, they must step up to the plate. If they do not, then I believe a strong message needs to be sent throughout this industry. That message should be that NACHI has arrived, and is no one’s whipping-boy.
In your home state, PHIC has engaged in what some would describe as attempted monopolistic tactics. The fact that NAHI, Keystone ASHI, and PHIC are allowed to do this, legitimizes thair claims, and does little to serve our members.
ASHI and NAHI have repeatedly failed to curtail the actions of some of its chapters and chapter leaders. In doing so, they have (in fact) condoned the action.
I believe the time has come to send that all-so-clear message that needs to be sent. We are either compliant or not. If we are, then we must stop this type of inflamatory conduct on the part of PHIC, et al. Its hurting our members, and it needs to stop.
We have spoken of lawsuits and being in the right for a yesr now. What has been done? Why have they not been forced to stop. This is clearly a restraint of trade issue, and it seems that any competent administrative law judge will be able to see this. An edict to immediately cease and desist by a court officer, including any member of the AG's staff, would stop 'em dead in their tracks. If they failed to comply, they would be in contempt of court, and this issue would help swing the perception-pendulum in the opposite direction for our PA members. We could then set up a legal defense fund for the offending PHIC members. What a hoot that would be!
