May 16th 2015 Meeting Update

posted May 10, 2015, 7:10 PM by Kenneth Fast

Our first guest speaker Jim Palmer, certified instructor for Trac Gas Piping, will provide a 4 hour presentation.  Those who attend will be certified in Trac Gas Piping installation and receive a certificate to add to your office wall of fame.  Certifications will be added to the web site for members in attendance.

    Our second guest speaker will be R. J. Pierpont who is certified with International Gas Code.  His 2 hour presentation titled, Unvented Gas Logs: Pros and Cons will directly correspond with the first speaker to emphasize the importance of correct installations of unvented and vented gas appliances, carbon monoxide dangers, damper retro-fits and chimney repairs.   Both of these speakers should provide a wealth of information on life safety issues that we as inspectors need to know and educate our home buying clients about. A question and answer session will follow so come prepared with your concerns about these items.


    We also will be electing chapter officers and committee members.  Please give some thought as to what this chapter means to you and what you can contribute.  Our chapter is growing and it is important to elect quality leadership for the chapter and committee positions. This decision falls on all members shoulders.


6 hours of education approval has been submitted to ASHI and the State.  We should have verification shortly.



    The cost for this meeting will be $20.00 for chapter members and $40.00 for non-members.

     Breakfast Snacks will be provided compliments of the chapter

     Lunch will be provided compliments of Master Dry



Please try to attend and invite a fellow inspector that you think would be interested in learning more about ASHI and the East TN Chapter.
