The Maine Coalition of Home Inspection Professionals (MeCHIPs) was founded in January 1999 to create a professional forum for Home Inspectors, to provide a place for the exchange of information regarding the Home Inspection industry, and to effectively represent Home Inspection Professionals.
The Maine Coalition of Home Inspection Professionals (MeCHIPs) is a nonprofit professional organization dedicated to:
- Advancing and promoting home inspection in the State of Maine through positive contact with the general public, lending institutions, and real estate professionals.
- Fostering professionalism within the industry through the use of a Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice and continuing education. MeCHIPs is not affiliated with any single national trade organization but encourages members to join organizations of their choice.
- Providing positive input in the creation of legislation affecting the home inspection industry and the well being of the citizens of Maine.
