We are members in good standing of the following organizations:

Inspections are conducted in accordance with Illinois Department of Financial and Professional  Regulations and the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Copies of these are provided at the beginning of the inspection and are also available at www.thespeakersays.com. Client participation is encouraged as this is a valuable time for exchange of information between the client and the inspector.
