NABIE encourages all professional engineers and architects involved in the building inspection engineering industry to join our organization. We need your knowledge, experience and skill in the Academy. By the same token, you will enhance your standing in the business community through your affiliation with fellow professional engineers and architects.

As you may already know, the Academy is the only organization in the United States that actively pursues the interests of building inspection engineers. These interests include working with the state legislatures on licensing or other regulatory activity, encroachment on the profession by non engineers, professional advancement and networking with colleagues, as well as promoting building inspection engineering with the media and the general public. NABIE is a chartered affinity group of the National Society of Professional Engineers and also works closely with several other professional societies.

NABIE is a young organization, incorporated in 1989. It has members in all major metropolitan areas and most states. It speaks for home and building inspection engineers in every state through monitoring of legislation, court cases and government activity. It interfaces with affiliated real estate associations and commissions, state engineering boards and other standard setting organizations, for example, ASTM and the Council of Scientific and Specialty Engineering Boards (CESB).

The Academy actively promotes its Standards of Practice, its peer review program and its several publications. We claim leadership in representing the practice of building inspection engineering and count ourselves as professionals who adhere to the highest standard of practice.
