ASHI Board approves program for multi-inspector companies and more


The ASHI Board approved a dues category for multi-inspector firms at its April meeting. Headquarters is developing a list of companies that will qualify for this category.

If your company has three or more inspectors working out of the same office, please contact Russell at headquarters by phone, 847-954-3185, or e-mail, russelld@ashi.org.

Take advantage of ASHI discussion boards 

ASHI encourages members to take advantage of the opportunity to share technical knowledge and business tips on its discussion boards on the Members Only website. Some of ASHI's most respected members participate in these discussions.

The boards are monitored, and policies covering acceptable content will be displayed so there are no misunderstandings about their use. For example, no discussions of rates are allowed since this can be interpreted as ASHI setting prices.
