National Inventory Certification Association congratulates member
Debra Palmer for achieving the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist.

PalmerPRESS RELEASE – The National Inventory Certification Association™ (NICA) is pleased to announce that Debra Palmer, owner of Tampa-based Palmer Home and Business Inventory Professionals, has earned the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS). Achieving this designation confirms her knowledge to provide quality residential and business inventory services.

An increased awareness of the necessity and benefits of having a photographic and written record of one’s personal property has resulted in the growth of the asset inventory industry. This is creating a demand for this professional service for both residential and commercial sectors.

Debra Palmer has been a business services entrepreneur in the Tampa Bay Area since 1988.  In 2013, she was introduced to the concept of third party inventories and spent extensive time researching the industry. Through exhaustive research and direct communications with individuals who had experienced losses and endured the claims process of their insurance companies without up to date documentation to substantiate equitable settlements, Debra realized the need for inventory professionals in the Tampa Bay Area.

Choosing to achieve certification will enable Debra and Palmer Home and Business Inventory Professionals to stand apart from other asset inventory professionals who have not yet achieved this national designation. A key requirement for certification and membership with NICA is to agree to the Code of Ethics, which helps ensure that all Certified Inventory Specialists serve their clients with integrity, respect, and confidentiality.
