The American Society of Home Inspectors is the leading professional association of home inspectors in the United States and Canada. The Northern Virginia Chapter was established in 1993 to provide local home inspectors with a more convenient opportunity to be active in an ASHI Chapter. In addition to special programs at monthly meetings, the chapter sponsors training sessions and seminars throughout the year. This provides home inspection members with an excellent opportunity to learn about structural and mechanical systems as well as to remain current on issues affecting the local housing market.
