I have had enough of Nachi and I will do everything in my power to see to it they are not a part of Florida. Believe it or not, I am winning down here. I have convinces out state that they are the reason we need regulation.

I am on my way out of FABI as this is my last term. I do not care if I go down in flames. I will fight to protect the class act inspectors that cannot speak. I will fight to protect the real inspectors that care about their customers.

Now, pay money to ASHI and Inspection Depot by seeing both of them on the stage together, in Florida. With both of them soon to be part of the FABI leadership, the Inspection Depot/ASHI/FABI partnership will be complete.

I encourage all NACHI members to join the Central Missouri NACHI chapter in its refusal to spend any money with Inspection Depot and, instead, seek NACHI-friendly vendors to do business with.

The Hooper/Rowan alliance has FABI and ASHI's support. Read Hoopy's email, above, and you can easily see why.

IMO, one should not assist this anti-NACHI political movement with your financial support of any anti-NACHI businesses.

Remember the immortal words of Hoopy:

Quote:
Nachi will allow anyone to be a member and ...they are a discrace to the professional inspection world. If you are a member, then you too are part of the problem as you enable this lieing association to exist. Wake up and smell the coffee. Get real.

I was a member of that piece of @#$% org once. Too bad for me.

Jeff G. Hooper


IMO, you should think of this before you make a purchase of home inspection equipment or services and be sure you are not supporting people who support this sentiment.

icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif I'm confused. Are you saying that nachi members should not use the services of a vender that provides valuable HI training provided by nationally recognized trainers if they also support another org.



What are you afraid of other than the fact that nachi inspectors may receive valuable information and recognize the fact that nachi may not be the only org and place to excel in this profession.

Let me guess the message to nachi members is to retain membership " Worship Nick and Nachi," Communism and dictatorship at its finest. icon_eek.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

Knowing how your last post is destined for the spam trash heap like all your others, harris, I won't copy or quote you. I will respond to the part that is on topic.

Inspection Depot is not the only source of quality products and services. NACHI members can and should continue to invest in quality products and services, but not from vendors who mean them harm. It only makes sense.

IMO you have stepped outside of the leadersip of NACHI, and this thread should be deleted. Until nachi as an org. makes a stance on the relationship between Nachi and inspection depot this type of rebellion should not be tolerated. As a "leader" in this org you should know better and threads like this should not be allowed until we know the official stance of the membership, mab, and Nick, since it is his org. I believe you should retract this thread immediately, as you have steeped out of the designed flow of leadership. Just my 2 cents icon_wink.gif

Course itinerary looks pretty good and the CEU Cost is reasonable.

ID means harm to nachi by providing professional training and equipment at reasonable rates??
Not to mention did I not see that ID provides helpful training photos and illustrations at no charge when C&D demanded that nick quit using their copywriten illustrations with out authoritarian, and also offers nachi members a discount on their products.

Whats next, nachi members are not permitted to associate with ashi members?

It's like this, harris. There are many different vendors who supply quality materials and services to home inspectors. Inspection Depot is only one of several.

Prudent NACHI members will purchase from those vendors who (1) do not support legislation that will put them out of business, (2) do not support high profile people who use their positions to express such garbage about them as Hooper does, and (3) who support NACHI members and their ideals.

Maybe Inspection Depot will someday get on board with us. Until then, IMO, we should certainly not support them in their attempt to harm us. You ASHI guys can go ahead, if you like. We can always take our business elsewhere. icon_wink.gif

Thanks for the permission. You are doing damage to nachi by going against ID. I beleive we have press releases with them and terms for their pictures on are home page. You are not promoting unity in the org. This is bcoming dangerously close to violating the coe icon_wink.gif

I hope you're charging less than two cents for that opinion. icon_lol.gif

If you really feel that way though, Ben, you should file a complaint. Seriously.
