Previous Meeting — November 2020

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 7:00 PM
Online (Zoom)


Matthew Brown, RPT, called the meeting to order at 7:05 PM. A quorum was present.

  • We decided to hold a Zoom meeting in December rather than have a Chapter-organized gathering.
  • A possibility for a January 2021 Arizona State Seminar would be to have a free online Zoom event where Technicians can gather to share tips, tricks and ideas, especially covering weird, odd skills where it helps to have a refresher.


Fixed Rate vs Hourly Rate Billing — Tony Smith, RPT

Tony talked about the difference between Fixed Rate vs Hourly Rate Billing for in-home and dealer work and also talked a bit about Travel Rates for long-distance work.

This meeting will be available to view for 30 days. Please contact the Secretary for a link to the unlisted YouTube video.
