Inspection News and Views from the American Society of Home Inspectors

Could You Contribute to ASHI's Publications?


To publish the Reporter and newsletters, ASHI depends on members who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences with other home inspectors.  Do you have something to contribute?

Do you have chapter news to share, especially photos of members participating in chapter activities?

Do you come across unusual conditions during your inspections? If so, send photos of them to be published in the Postcards from the Field section.

Do you have an inspection-related success story, safety tip, viewpoint, opinion or business or technical article that would be of interest to other readers? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

Some readers are new to the profession, while others are grizzled inspector veterans. Most fall somewhere in between, but it seems that all inspectors are curious by nature, always ready to learn more. Therefore, articles for all levels of inspection and business expertise are appreciated. The key is that they must be inspection-related.

To be considered, the submission must be inspection-related and sent via e-mail.

If accepted for publication, articles are edited and authors sign a standard agreement attesting to the originality of the material and granting ASHI copyright authority.

Technical topics go through an additional step.

The ASHI Technical Committee reviews technical submissions for level of interest and accuracy before publication. Therefore, we recommend authors submit their ideas for technical articles in summary or outline form and request feedback from the committee before writing the article.

ASHI members receive Continuing Education (CE) hours for published technical articles.
