CREIA Announces a Membership Drive Contest

The CREIA Membership Drive has begun. With a start date of Sept 1st, we are aiming to have 100 additional members by June 1, 2010. Tthere are plenty of prizes for the chapter (and members) that show the largest percentage increase by June 1, 2010. Since membership can fluctuate, it is important that the chapter maintain its current members while increasing efforts to reach out to non-member inspectors. Every chapter has the possibility to win. On Sept 1st, CREIA welcomed two new members – one to the San Diego chapter and one to the Palm Springs chapter – so the game is on and (on a percentage increase basis) that puts Palm Springs Chapter in the early lead.

Click here (sorry members only) to see the current chapter by chapter standing as of the Sept 1st launch date, the contest rules and most importantly, the prizes. Help us meet our goal of 100 new members in the coming year!

Hello, my name is Amy Norris.

My husband, Rich Norris, was an inspector in San Diego for 16 years. He passed away in April 2003. I have a lot of books that he enjoyed collecting and I would like to sell them. Do you know anyone who might be interested in purchasing them. I have attached a list of books. I am moving and need to get rid of them very quickly. I appreciate any help that you might give me.
