Discount Coupon Helps Build Chapters


ASHI offers a $30 discount coupon for new members who join the national society and a chapter at the same time. Here’s how it works. The chapter downloads a coupon for the new member, discounts first-year chapter dues by $30 and sends the coupon to headquarters to be reimbursed. Use the coupon as an incentive to build the chapter and the society.

Questions? Contact Russell Daniels at russelld@ashi.org.

Chapter Bylaws Reviewed for You


Chapter leaders, if you haven't already done so, please submit your chapter bylaws for review. All chapter bylaws and rules must be in compliance with ASHI bylaws and policy. Questions? Contact Russell Daniels at russelld@ashi.org.

Standards Exam now Education Module


What was once the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics Examination, a necessary step for becoming an ASHI Certified Inspector, is now the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics education module. The module remains a requirement for full ASHI membership and continues to be available on the ASHI Home Inspector Web site at no additional cost.

Members who must take the Standards Exam to meet state requirements can make arrangements to do so by contacting Sarah Walsh at sarahw@ashi.org.
