ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) just put on a nice show. Informative, educational, relaxing…. A fine way to kick start 2012! I had the pleasure of representing U.S. Inspect at this gathering.
Yes, the climate was ideal for the first week in January. It was 70 warm degrees and perfectly blue skies out in the Arizona desert but things were nice indoors also. They provided 45 different educational sessions ranging from “The Art of Building Science” to “Low Cost, Ground Zero Home Inspection Marketing” and everything in between.
Well over 500 inspectors were in attendance including quite a few of our Canadian neighbors. There were lots of friendly people meeting, interacting and learning together.
The vendor displays were also interesting. One booth included a much coveted Harley Davidson for a fortunate winner! No luck there for me but I did win a couple of small raffle gifts which were nice.
Perhaps the real treat was for the first time ever, my wife and daughter also made this trip. Now they know what a Home Inspector Convention is really like!
It’s cold and rainy back in Virginia now. Why am I dreaming about motorcycles and cactus plants? OK, back to work, Bill!
