Rob Paterkiewicz, ASHI’s Executive Director helps out NACHI’s membership drive.
In a 2-page letter to ASHI's Members and Candidates with Logo Use Privileges, Rob Paterkiewicz explained why he nearly doubled ASHI membership dues from $300 to $550 a year.
Although the additional $250 wasn't reflected in the enclosed invoice...it is expected to hit by January. I guess he didn't want recipients to fall off their chairs by whacking them all at one time.
The excuse he used was "branding." But unlike NACHI which helps inspectors brand their own home inspection company name locally, ASHI wants its members to pay for branding its own ASHI logo.
While NACHI continues to add to the list of benefits it provides its members http://www.nachi.org/benefits.htm ASHI members continue to wise up. We like the wise ASHI members. 14 more wised up today when they got their letter/bill. Welcome guys. It is nice to have you at NACHI.
PS. Thanks Rob!
