NACHI was better than it is, today…and could be even better tomorrow, but it takes more than one man’s personal ambitions and hyperbolic ramblings.
Here is just one for instance…
I’ve been reading several threads of newer (and still hopeful) members who are looking for NACHI to seek greater credibility recognition so that, by their membership, they can achieve the same.
Another national association that I belong to announced this month that it was seeking accreditation by an independent and national accrediting agency (the National Commission of Certifying Agencies). Once accredited, the members who this home inspection association “certifies” will carry a third party national certification with the title…not just something locally created and copyrighted.
Will it do good for its members? Perhaps…perhaps not. But it is working hard in the direction that so many have been wanting to see NACHI take.
“Yes…but I got a free widget and a free framastrat…and that is worth the $289 membership fee” some say. Okay. If that is what you are looking for…a Dollar Store full of cheap stuff…you’re in the right place.
As Nick has announced…we are not a home inspection association anymore. Only those of us who have wanted it to be walk away from it in disappointment. Those purchasing access to the “Nick’s Bargain Barn” for the 10% off at Office Depot (who will be closing 300 of its stores in February)…bon apetite.
We could have been better. To make it better will not come from “thanking Nick” for the status quo. I hope there will be others who follow after I am gone to continue to challenge Nick to make NACHI what it could have been…instead of a cheap vending machine.
