David Tamny of Professional Property Inspection, Columbus, Ohio has been elected secretary of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the leading non-profit organization for professional home inspectors.

During his term, Tamny will work closely with newly elected president, Don Norman of St. Louis, Mo., to emphasize ASHI's role as the leader in the home inspection profession.  According to Tamny, "I have thoroughly studied ASHI's ethics and standards, and am dedicated to making sure that these are upheld for the betterment of ASHI and the home inspection profession."

In addition to bringing attention to ASHI's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, the organization continues to see the positive impact of its new program, The ASHI Experience, which was launched a year ago and has resulted in increased consumer awareness and new opportunities for ASHI Inspectors.

"The ASHI Experience has brought us a great deal of exposure through new Public Service Announcements, print and radio advertising and media attention at both the national and local levels," said Norman. He added, "We are confident that we have provided our Members and qualified Candidates with the tools and education needed to deliver on this commitment to the public of outstanding customer service combined with the best in technical expertise."

In conjunction with the significant marketing and educational tools created for its members over the last year, ASHI completely redesigned its Web site (www.homeinspector.org) to make it easy for users to locate an ASHI Inspector and to experience its industry-first "Virtual Home Inspection," also available online.
