Pam Sayne becomes the new President of the Association.  She brings a diverse career and experience to her responsibilities as President.  With a graduate degree in education, and formal credentials in home inspection and other diagnostic disciplines such as thermography and energy auditing, Pam serves a diverse clientele of consumers, vendors, owners and new home builders.

President Sayne commented proudly that:

"This is a Board I am particularly happy to work with as we are all strongly focused on the interests of our members and the good of the profession. The members of the Board clearly support responding to our members and demanding the highest professional standards.

"As home inspectors, we all work very hard on behalf of our clients. Inspectors of new construction have demonstrated their value in working with new home buyers, builders and Tarion Warranty Corporation.   As directors, our job is to inform Ontario residents how our profession is critical in the health and safety of homes and families. Our profession is important for the preservation of our housing stock in Ontario and, through the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI) of which we are a member, across Canada.

"This profession has come a long way in the last 25 years. The Ontario Association of Home Inspectors has built up an extremely rich membership of experience and expertise. This growing expertise in the profession creates high expectations of our organization in its leadership role.

"The members of the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors are creating consumer awareness - making it more difficult for anyone to just hang up a shingle and claim to be a home inspector. Our 25th anniversary is a landmark for the profession and our dedicated membership."

OAHI continues to enhance protection for consumers by supporting the activities of the Ministries of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Consumer Services, Labour and Training, Colleges and Universities to enhance knowledge of its members in professional practice, building codes and standards, and risk management; and continues to express the belief that all home inspectors in Ontario should be formally qualified to practice.  For the first time, OAHI reached a new milestone by being invited to participate with other professional, industry and regulatory bodies on the advisory committee for the housing portion of the next edition of the Ontario Building Code.

About the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors:
The OAHI was formed in 1987. In 1994, the OAHI became a self-regulating professional body when the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors Act received royal assent, granting the OAHI the exclusive right to define qualification requirements, regulate its members and grant the designation "Registered Home Inspector" and "RHI" to qualified practitioners in the Province of Ontario, under control of title.  The OAHI is dedicated to providing consumer protection by enhancing the technical skills and professional practice of home inspectors, and maintaining high professional standards through education and discipline.
