In this age of questionable customer service and quality of products, isn't it nice to actually receive more than you ever expected?
When the benefits of NACHI are compared to ASHI it becomes crystal clear.
NACHI annual dues are $289 vs. $350 + $150 (Branding etc)=$500.
Recently posted in the What's New section NACHI just funded a $35,000 contract for the Atlanta chapter with absolutely no cost to members. How's that for getting more than expected. I am not going to list the numerous NACHI members benefits which can be view on this message board.
ASHI benefits seem to focus on benefits directed towards ASHI and not their members. I am also an ASHI member. The amount of business I personally have received as a result of the ASHI web site listing has declined this year. The hard sell to support the ASHI branding campaign was anticipating increasing each members business.
In short, the extra money that I paid to ASHI has resulted in a decrease in business from them but I am the proud owner of a "priceless" plastic case which contained the ASHI Experience and branding promotional materials which I refuse to give to any client due to the amateurish presentation.
NACHI has lower due and provides a tremendous amount of support to assisting members develop their business and ASHI cost more and delivers less but you do get a cheap plastic case.
What's in your wallet?
