Ready for a 40th anniversary party where you get the presents? This coming January, the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) are joining to celebrate 4 decades as leaders in the home inspection industry. And you’re invited.
InspectionWorld® conference attendance means 20 ASHI continuing education credits as well as some state credits, plus you’ll get all of the networking and training benefits of any great national conference. Mark you calendar now, and plan to attend their celebration.
What are the Dates?
The official ASHI / CREIA InspectionWorld® conference dates are January 24 – 27, 2016, with an opening day of January 24, 2016, but there’s plenty to do before and after. On January 22 and 23 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., you’ll have access to the two-day CA Plumbing Code Certification exam or the Certified Residential Thermographer Course. The ASHI Board of Directors meeting will be held from 8-5 on Saturday, the 23rd.
According to ASHI, the Expo Hall will officially open its doors for the conference at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, the 24th, with a reception in the hall at 5:00 p.m. But registration begins at 7:00 a.m., and there’s lots to do in-between. The conference wraps up at 4:15 on January 27. Check out the complete activities schedule here.
Where is the Conference?
Sunny San Diego, CA is host to 2016’s conference at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center. You can review and print a map of the resort at this link. The sprawling site has a lot to see, so it’s smart to learn your way around before you get there.
Taxi service is available from the airport, and ASHI’s FAQ page recommends planning for approximately $25 per trip. If you drive to the conference, plan for parking rates at $5 per day on site. Although you can stay anyplace you like, the conference recommends booking your room at the Town & Country resort for better rates and for convenience.
