The Find An Inspector search function has been adjusted to guard against the search response overloading consumers with names. A zip code search will provide the con-sumer with up to the first 100 names by proximity in a 150 mile radius of the zip code entered. This ensures that the consumer will receive no more than four pages of results.
The Metro search function has not been changed. When a consumer enters a metro area, the names of all ASHI Inspectors who have registered for that metro area will appear in random order. Renewal Report–97% of Members and Candidates with logo use

Chapter leaders were sent a treasure trove of branding tools all on a handy CD: The ASHI Experience Chapter CD.
There’s so much on this CD, it has been suggested several volunteers review specific sections and report back to the leadership on how to best use this resource. Also ASHI Director of Chapter Relations scheduled a series of conference calls for Chapter Presidents to ask questions and share ideas related to the material on the CD.How is The ASHI Experience working for you?
