InspectionWorld California: We're Going to Disneyland!

ANGELA ORLANDO

“I’m going to Disneyland!”

For years, this has been the iconic answer to the “what are you going to do now?” question posed by reporters to top athletes…and now, the question applies to the home inspection profession as well. InspectionWorld California, co-sponsored by ASHI and the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA), will take place January 10-13, 2007, at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, Calif.

Over the course of the four-day event, home inspection professionals will have access to a dynamic education program—over 35 different sessions spanning five tracks—where full conference attendees will receive 20 Membership Renewal Credits (MRCs) for attending. Additionally, the Conference Education committee is in the process of submitting all sessions for approval in states where Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are required.

Daily special events and activities are on the schedule as well, starting with the Greetings from California opening night reception, and culminating with the President’s Gala, a festive affair where attendees can kick back and relax after an intense week of learning. This year, we will be taking over a part of Disney’s California Adventure theme park for this memorable event.

Conference attendees will have plenty of opportunities to visit with over 85 industry-specific vendors in the show’s 30,000-square foot exhibit hall. InspectionWorld exhibitors represent a variety of products and services relevant to the home inspection industry —testing equipment, tools, inspection software, report materials and more.

Finally, since the Disney destination sets the stage for making your business trip into a family affair, we’ve developed a fantastic spouse program to ensure that Inspection-World California will offer something for everyone.
