Peter G. Engle, PE of Rumson, NJ. Receives Cox Award From American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI)

Peter G. Engle, PE, of Almost Home, Inc. in Rumson, NJ has been awarded the 2005 John E. Cox Member of the Year Award from the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) for outstanding service to the Garden State Chapter of ASHI. The award is one of the highest awards presented in the home inspection profession.  The award was presented by the Society in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, during the group's recent Annual Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony held in conjunction with InspectionWorld 2006, the annual conference of professional home inspectors.

Established in 1990, the Cox Award honors individuals who have made exemplary contributions to their chapter. The recipient must be an ASHI Member who has rendered outstanding service to his or her ASHI Chapter, either over a period of years or under special circumstances. The Cox Award recipient is nominated by his or her chapter, and selected by ASHI's Council of Representatives.

"Pete's unselfish devotion to his chapter and more importantly to the home inspection profession, is the strength he brings to our chapter," said Garden State ASHI Chapter President Ernie Borsellino. "He continues today to seek a better future for the home inspection profession, he believes in and promotes the principals of ASHI, and he has proven this with his total commitment to the Society."

Engle has been a member of ASHI since 1995 holding both national and local positions. He is currently the Chair of the Ethics and Professional Practices complaints committee. According to Engle, "I hope to continue applying my knowledge and experience in serving ASHI and the home inspection profession at large. In New Jersey, we are working very hard to promote the very highest technical and ethical standards for home inspector licensing. I am also looking forward to helping the Society promote its industry-leading standards and ethics guidelines on a national level."
