  4. Home inspectors have reinvented language since the earliest days of our profession. I think it's because of a need to be thought of as more professional.
  5. Is his cash cow business a " society "? A professional association (also called a professional body, professional organization, or professional society) is usually a nonprofit organization seeking to further a particular profession, the interests of individuals engaged in that profession and the public interest.
