Bosch wants to have each inspectors first year dues be $900 and subsequent years $500 as I recall. Further, if an inspector chooses to not join the state organization the inspector's annual license fee is increased several hundred dollars.
What I find interesting is that Bosch has sold his inspection business and "retired." I wonder if he may be looking to fill a paid executive director's role in this organization, and wants to be sure there is enough money to pay for the lifestyle to which he has grown accustomed.
One of the things I find most distressing is that this is cloaked as an effort to serve both the public and the industry, when it will primarily serve the interests of a few.
