From the Desk of the Executive Director:
Fellow Texas Inspectors:
2019 is off to a great start. The TPREIA Board of Directors met on January 19, 2019 to review 2018 and to look forward to 2019. The TPREIA family has grown rapidly over the past year, our membership is currently just shy of 1300.
Everything Is Local
The importance of local Chapters cannot be stressed enough. TPREIA Chapters are the legs that move the body (Association) forward.
As current TPREIA President and Executive Director, I want to say how proud and thankful we are of our Inspector members willing to give time and knowledge to other Inspectors to build a strong and professional industry.
On behalf of the TPREIA Board of Directors, Thank you!
We currently have 9 Chapters across Texas with 2-3 additional of scheduled in 2019.
Please let the State Chapter Development Committee know if there is not a Chapter in your area, consider building a TPREIA family in your area, the TPREIA Board of Directors are always ready to help.
Each position on a board at the local level is so important to the overall success of the Chapters including the local group served, serving others is one of the most rewarding things one can do. If you have wanted to work within this great family, there is always an opportunity.
New Look/New System
Last year we introduced a new TPREIA website, including a robust association management system. We worked hard in 2018 to build the Website so members could join, pay dues, vote, blog, all online at their leisure. The focus in 2019 will be on Public Relations, we will be working with the Chapter’s PR Directors to build a strong name recognition of the TPREIA name as well as a strong Inspector Finder so Buyers/Sellers will be able to find an Inspector on our Website for their inspection needs. Randy Ryden is the TPREIA Vice-President of Public Relations for 2019-2020.
2019 Annual Conference
The Annual Conference this year will be September 26-28, 2019 at the Brazos County Expo Center. Please make your plans to attend. Information on Educational Classes, Speakers and Vendors will be sent out in March through May. We will be sending out the names of the hotels that we are working with and the discounted rate in March, please book early.
