This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series IAFST
Author, interviewer, consultant, commentator., and most of the time just a crazy loon…Aaron Aveiro…

I recently spoke with Tony Newman, a ten year industry veteran  and sitting chairman of the recently developed trade association,; International Association of Field Service Technitians. (IAFST). For now we’ll call them the new kids on the block.

However, They do bring a vast awry of industry experience to the table. As we move along through the introductory  phase of the organization and it’s Board of Directors, yes I know making this article the introductory to; is making this the beginning of a series  of articles.

The New Kids on the block…

In my defense and IMHO… The recent and inevitable future court decisions are going to have a dramatic effect on the PPI, affecting a well over 50% of the PPI’s “Leading Trade Association” membership. No I’m not gonna do it. However, I will allow it’s individual organization to speak for themselves.

Each week as we get to know the Board of Directors of IAFST, we, that is Labor will pose a question for each organization to answer. Pretty sure that would allow everyone to make a solid business decision about their business and memberships to industry specific trade organizations. After all…knowledge is priceless.

Here is my interview with sitting Chairman Tony Newman;

Who are the board of directors?.

 Tony Newman (Chairman) Presentable Property
Joel Irish: Hawkeye Field services,
Jerry Hahn :Precision Property Management (Membership Chairman)

Jeff Markee : Paramount Asset Management,

. Kelly brown: PMT preservation( Treasurer)Education Subcommittee Chair;

Todd Schneider is Real Estate Subcommittee Chair..

Where. Did the education program come from and can it be reviewed?

A. Modules are being built as we speak. Membership will be able to view and use as completed.

What separates IAFST. From NAMFS?

A. We are concerned about the relationship between Management and Labor. We want to bridge the gap and create a marriage between the two. We are concentrated on Labor then upwards, not the other way around. Labor and management will have unfettered access to each other through the membership rolls. We plan to educate the membership as a 3rd party entity in Business Organization, Client specific needs, Certification and the overall health of their business. This will be accomplished thru a mentor system for those who desire the information.

SALARY. Are there any salary positions in the organization?

A. Not at this time and there are no plans to create.

How will the organization support itself?

A. The payment of memberships, education modules and we ask membership to fund the association with a 1% commission on all work entered into with and through fellow members.

Will organization support and represent the best interests of the membership?

A. Our sole purpose is to help all those associated with IAFST to earn more money. That is attained with certification and relationships built with in the IAFST.

Will the organization have/support a conflict resolution program. And ensure that all levels and business models are treated fairly?

A. We are built on the premise that all parties will be represented equally with in IAFST and we promote a free and open market place. We will work in whatever capacity that is needed in order to facilitate that idea.

How do you think the recent federal court decision in Bowerman v FAS will affect the industry?

A. Until a directive is given by the federal government defining W9 verses W2 in the same language as the decision in the Bowerman case, I don’t believe the industry will change.

.
Many suggested that the order mills (me being one of them) need to go and that the work needs to directly to the BOTG. Will IAFST be able to assist any transition actions should this happen?

Answered above….you can be the judge if that response.

I have commented in the video below.  This will be the first in the series of articles we roll out in the new promising upstart trade organization for the Mortgage Field Service Industry. As we get to know the BOD members and their companies we’ll explore various issues that are PPI related and pose a question to both NAMFS & IAFST….  Then of course we can let the potential members make conclusions based on fact presented.

I had to give a couple plugs at the end and just do a little ranting… Remember we are looking to develop a radio show for the MFS if you’d be interested in sponsoring or if you need a little promotional assisstance I’d be happy to help…give me a 📞

Have a great day folks…as always

Until Next Time

Happy Gardening

This morning I received this email requesting I become a traitor to our county and in my humble opinion commit treason. You can read the original posting here

Dear Aaron Aveiro,
The Yabberz community has changed its mission. The new mission is simple — Resist, Repeal, and Replace Donald J. Trump.

Our democracy, our core American values, and our basic way of life is under attack from the alt-right inspired Trump Agenda. Together on Yabberz, we can support each other and help bring this agenda to a speedy end.

But without action, our way of life will vanish by executive order and a complacent Republican lead congress. Yabberz aims to be a meeting place, free of trolls where resistor stories will find a supportive audience and community. Let’s resist and amplify our voices together.

Join the movement at Yabberz

Sincerely,
Mike Horton 
CEO

This was/is my response to Mr. Horton

Go f*&€ yourself . I will not commit treason.

While I appreciate everyone’s right to say and express their opinions and views, I will not participate in an asinine platform to undermine our country because traitors lost the most recent election. 

While you Mr. Horton are jumping on the lunacy bandwagon you seriously need to ask yourself a few questions.

Did Mr. Trump sell our uranium deposits to Russia?

Did Mr. Trump receive astromical speaking fees to speak in Russia?

Does Mr. Trump have a foundation that fronts as a child protection organization while being connected to child trafficking claims?

Has Mr. Trump assisted in the release of criminals arrested for child trafficking?

Has Mr. Trump accepted over 75 million dollars from countries that routinely repress women and have violent rape cultures?

Has any of Mr. Trump’s associates attempted go public with damaging information turn up dead or “commit suicide” for the past 35 years?

Has Mr. Trump’s wife publicly debased or personally attacked women that have made accusations of sexual misconduct against her husband?

Has Mr. Trump been connected to “Orgy Island”?

Has any of Mr. Trump’s assistants or spouses of assistants been accused or caught interacting sexually with minors??? (What if that was your 15 year old daughter Mr. Horton, or anyone else supporting this assinie divisive crap???)

Has Mr. Trump supported the murder & rape of innocent women and children???

Has anyone associated with Mr. Trump violated this country’s esponiage act???

Has Mr. Trump written, or is he, in any manner connected with Saul Alinski’s “Rules for Radicals”

And that is just off the top of my head this morning Mr. Horton. This my knee jerk reaction this morning because you have asked me to commit an act of treason. Wonder how long this would be if I actually spent a couple hours researching the people you are supporting with your inane San Franciscian elitist self.

There are many issues I do not agree with Mr. Trump about. However, as an AMERICAN I will not disrespect our United States of America Constitution nor will I disrespect the office of President of the United States of America.

Any time you place colorful adjetives in front of the phrase “lives matter” or the word “American” you create division.

It is apparent that is what you, Mr. Horton wish to do, create a social media platform to create division for your beloved traitors.  Instead of using your influence and position to create solutions you chose division.

Yes, our Democracy, AMERICAN values  and way of AMERICAN life is under attack, from narrow minded self entitled poltroons like you.

I’m sorry sir, but committing treason, that is something I can not nor will I, as an AMERICAN, support or participate in.

Respectively,

Aaron Aveiro

Until Next Time

Happy Gardening

 

UPDATE:

Mike “you’re unacceptable because you don’t view thing my way” Horton

I’m guessing Mr. Horton enjoys practicing censorship as my account on Yabberz has been deleted. So this tells me Mr. Horton prefers living in a bubble with blinders as no opossing view is acceptable in his little narrow minded universe in San Francisco. You would think that having an elongated forehead would make one a little more tolerant of others views. Especially when said views offer some sort of balance to the dichotomy created when you create division under the guise of using your First Amendment right to tell others what you think.

So I dedicate this song to Mr. Horton.

Have a great day everyone. ..and lets all be safe out there
