    I’m glad to see this move for betterment. However, I am questioning a few things: 1) shouldn’t these be “standard” rules to practice anyways?, and 2) how would any of these be enforced?

    I say this because of many things I’ve experienced in other organizations and their inability to really control or protect these expectations. Typically, these expectations tend to sound great, but that’s about it.

    And lastly, you mention “integrity” and I would like to know how this applies to all of your membership–contractor, manufacturer, and distributor. This has been a questionable thing as of late, due to so many manufacturers now selling direct to the homeowner market and bypassing the contractor and distributor. I would say the same for the distributor as compared to the contractor. Overall, there’s been a split from the once mutual relationships we all shared. Currently, we are losing this over shortsighted greed/sales.
