Greetings and salutations!
2013 is shaping up to be a big year for the NHWA. We have been receiving a lot of inquiries from across the country and Canada about membership and our mentoring program. I actually spoke with a woman today that had been considering membership over three years ago. It is very satisfying to know that we have staying power, and that we’ve been able to maintain people’s interests, even after three years. As expected, Florida and Arizona remain the states with the most inquiries: from both Home Watch clients and companies. Because we are constantly gathering information and data, the NHWA is a great source of knowledge and advice for companies in our industry. Whether you are just starting out, or have been in the business for years, becoming an Accredited Member will help you grow your business and make you more profitable.
As a result a lot of very hard and tedious work, the NHWA will soon be making available a GENERAL LIABILITY policy to it’s Accredited Members. This policy is being written SPECIFICALLY for HOME WATCH. This is huge news, because as an industry, we are not classified. Check your policies, and you may find that you are classified as “janitorial” or “security guard” or maybe even “miscellaneous”. The categories that we are shoved into by insurance companies would amaze you. We have also been researching SOFTWARE and MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS. We have been inundated with questions about different products, so we have decided to get involved. Look for our choice(s) and recommendation(s) at our National Conference in Myrtle Beach this October.
If you have been considering joining us, do it already. If you’ve never considered it, here is your chance. There are many good reasons to join. We can help grow your business not only through our marketing, but also through the ability you’ll have to interact with other leading companies. That, my friends, is invaluable.
