A note to those thinking of joining. The price for joining NACHI is overwhelmingly repaid by those members like me which provide free services and advise on what to buy and where to buy it. If you join the other associations you will soon learn they only want to take your money and they do not want to share their knowledge with you because they are afraid of the competetion.


Just ask and you shall receive, providing I can of course.

I recently sent in my annual membership fee to ASHI. And it was like $345 dollars. $295 goes to ASHI. And $50 goes to costs incured by ASHI people in lobbying states within the Union to make being a member of a national association of certified home inspectors more difficult. What a rip off.


When you send in your memberhip fee to ASHI, they hide inside your membership fee an extra $45 dollars.

If you're not careful, your money will go towards making laws that hurt other home inspectors.

So ASHI members, (if there are any out there reading this), be careful.

And watch your money.

I'd like to see ASHI or NAHI make their national examination FREE, just like NACHI has.

Thanks NACHI.

I for one did not think there were many questions in there for the novice.


I would like to see them stop "fighting" for me and start providing some things free to the community they say their serving, like home inspectors.

Well said Ben!

I, for one, am glad i joined NACHI. My NACHI logo is on my cards and brochure. Eventually, the word will get out. It would be nice if, as a reference, there was a spot on the NACHI site that helped qualify Nick’s statement that we are the largest HI org. The fee schedule is right, the attitude is right, the requiremnts are right, the purpose is right. In order to be heard (and recognized at the state level), we need to have members, as a group, help shape legislation (or kill it) in those states currently considering it. Since we dont have lobbiests, letter-writing may be a grass-roots way to start. BTW, is NACHI involved in the PA amendmant process? It would be nice, and boost our credibility tremendously, if we were in the thisk of things and speaking to the senate/assembly of PA. A quote from someone at the state level mentioning us (even once) will put us on the map for real. Then when My Kelly opens his mouth, we sould stuff it with the quote. Which orifice is up to the “stuffer” of course, with or without permission of the “stuffee”

Last year, while calling around for prices on E & O and liability insurance I had a couple companies email me back with some questions so they could give me quotes. One in particular asked me not if I was a member of ASHI bur asked if I was a member of NACHI. Of course until then I never heard of it. The rest is history! Now if we could only get all the RE agents asking this question!..Bob

I have to admit that out of all the associations I have belonged to NACHI is by far the best. What other one has the founder taking the time to work for all of us? None that I can think of. If someone knows of one pass the info along. Thanks Nick

Matt:


Change your name to exactly how it appears in "featured inspectors" section and that will fix it automatically. The message board checks your message board name with your membership name and declares you a member only if they are the same...exactly the same. I checked and you are Matt in "featured inspectors" and mathew here on this board.
