The Online Meeting Group is an education arm (so to speak) of the MAC ASHI Chapter - in Maryland. If you've thought about joining ASHI, the association has a "deal" going right now through the end of the year. One Year Free (worth about $500 bucks). If you join the OMG, the dues are $75 per year. They're prorated through June (I think) - so joining the chapter is pretty cheap!

I joined and am getting membership representation through the Maryland chapter - since we don't have chapter down here in Mississippi.

If you ARE and ASHI member and don't have a chapter - this is an excellent way to participate in the chapter experience and gain a vote through the ASHI CoR - Council of Representatives.

Buzz me if you want to chat about it or drop a question below.

“S” trap or not. This seems to come up quite often on home inspection forums. Then there seems to much confusion on what is an “S” trap and what is actually allowed in a trap arm.
