WRAP UP:  InterNACHI Pro Inspector Convention 2023!

I had the pleasure of spending some quality time with the leadership of InterNACHI - including COO Ben Gromicko!

By Frank Lundeen - 218 Inspect Home Inspections  

Welcome to part 2 of my coverage of the InterNACHI Pro Inspector's Convention!  Click HERE to check out part 1 of this series.  This is the world's top gathering of professional home inspectors - and is packed full of education, seminars, a tradeshow floor full of the industry's top vendors (equipment, services, softwares, and groups), and networking opportunities.  

Six amazing 1.5 hour training sessions were attended Friday & Saturday!

Many meetings were had with a variety of industry vendors & personalities!

Conventions like this are all about networking, education, and building your quiver of tools - which is precisely what I've been up to for the past few days!

Over the past few days, I had the pleasure of meeting many folks - from passionate new inspectors to owners of the biggest multi-inspector firms in the country, and from Lab Scientists to the founder & COO of InterNACHI.  

The photo at the top of this post was taken during a fantastic conversation with Ben Gromicko - arguably the face of InterNACHI (not to mention COO, InterNACHI School Founder, and several other critical hats).  It was particularly fun to chat with Ben, as he is often the instructor and speaker in the literally hundreds of hours of InterNACHI classes, continuing education, and webinars I've taken over the past several years!  We chatted about some programs and things that will help to better serve 218 Inspect's clients back in Duluth.

In addition to the 9 hour hand on course mentioned in my previous blog post, Friday & Saturday featured six 1.5 hour educational sessions on topics ranging from Infrared Imaging to Radon to Mold to Marketing.  They were instructed by many of the foremost experts on the planet!  

Atlantic City was a great venue for the InterNACHI Pro Inspector Convention!

Fish tacos & a Margarita were enjoyed along the coast on Friday evening!

Sunday morning, I begin my journey home from Atlantic City, NJ to Duluth, MN.  This was a 16 hour journey (door to door) to get here on Wednesday - but I'm looking forward to a quicker direct flight to Minneapolis from Philadelphia tomorrow.  After my journey home (including planes, trains, and automobiles), I look forward to getting back to work for my clients right away this week!  I look forward to bringing this expertise, new technology, and amazing service to my clients in the Duluth region!
