The Southern Tier Association of Home Inspectors (STAHI) was founded in 2006 based on (4) core objectives:
- To promote excellence within the profession and to improve inspection services to the public.
- To provide members and others with a forum in which to enhance their professionalism through education and an informed exchange of ideas.
- To build public awareness and confidence in the home inspector.
- To interact with related professionals, the legal community and government bodies as a representative body for the local home and building inspection profession.
