An executive director with a unpaid fines from goverment agencies who lost appeals and still refuses to pay.
7) Does not verify member’s can follow the SOP and COE
6) No documented verification of a members past inspection quantity and not notorized.
5) Deceptive to the public by not showing the different levels of members when a search is made. A person can have someone else take the test and send in $289. and he is now a NACHI certified inspector with NO inspection experience! THAT’S ALL!!
4) No structure, owned by one man and no physical office address for anyone to visit. NACHI only exists in cyberspace.
3) There are no bi-laws for members to see and chaos surrounds most decisions by committees that don’t legally exist on papers per any alleged bi-laws.
2) It has become the organization of choice for ease into the industry with no definitive controls to protect the public.
- A court decision in the state of Pennsylvania stating that NACHI was not compliant with Pennsylvania Law when the law was enacted (under appeal?)
Unfortunately there are many good inspectors in the organization and many who care and are trying to do the right thing. This organization has potential if it was run in professional manner by the right people. Unfortunately that is not the case.
I cannot belong to an organization like this and because of these issues NACHI has to spend too much time defending itself and is still not widely accepted in the home inspection community.
Say what you want but this is my opinion on this matter which is shared by many from the sidelines and many of those who are the majority of mem bership but the MINORITY of those who are frequent posters on the messageboard but have more say.
I just have the "steadfast resolve" (sound familiar?) to bring this issues to light but I get bashed by the minority posters who are still in line to drink the Koolaid.
