Fall has fallen and so have a boatload of home inspection events. Here’s how to get educated, get connected and get back in business:
* THE major event hitting the home inspection scene this month is the 2013 Las Vegas Inspection Conference. Slated for October 20 through 24 in Sin City, this year’s show includes workshops ranging from amping up your marketing brochures to info on breaking income barriers. Of course you’ll get to play with the latest gadgets and take the standard certification classes too.
