If you’re a Minnesota home inspector or aspire to become one, you should join this Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). In fact, if you’re a home inspector anywhere close to Minnesota, you ought to join our chapter, which was rebooted back in 2014 after being defunct for a couple of years. We’ve grown steadily ever since.
What’s an ASHI chapter?
From the ASHI website, “Chapters are the heart of ASHI, delivering all the benefits of membership in an inspector-friendly, nurturing environment. Here you will find technical education, marketing and business-building tips, networking opportunities, report writing suggestions, camaraderie and swapping of “war stories.”
In other words, we’re a group of home inspectors who meet together every month to learn from trade professionals and each other, in order to be better home inspectors. We ask each other questions and have regular discussions in an effort to deliver better service to our clients. To join a chapter, one must also be a member of ASHI at the national level, but our chapter still welcomes visitors to our monthly meetings whether they’re members of ASHI or not. Annual chapter dues are $100.
It’s all about education
The top reason to join the ASHI Heartland Chapter is education. For starters, we have monthly meetings ten months out of the year. The monthly meetings typically take place at Frankie’s Pizza in New Hope. Chapter members pay $15 to attend these meetings, which includes dinner. For chapter members who can’t attend the meetings in person, we offer live streaming of the chapter meetings through Zoom. We also offer recordings of the past meetings to current chapter members.
With the chapter meetings alone, that’s 20 FREE hours of CE each year. We also offer two all-day seminars each year for only $25 each to chapter members, which is a steal.
All are welcome
Anyone is welcome to attend our chapter meetings. If there’s an upcoming meeting that sounds interesting, come check it out. If you’d like to subscribe to our chapter’s newsletter, please sign up below:
