What is NBFAA? Founded in 1948, the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) is the nation’s oldest and largest association dedicated to representing, promoting, and supporting the electronic life safety, security, and systems industry. Through a federation of state associations, NBFAA reaches grass roots members, enabling them to band together on national issues, and delivering to them industry information, professional development tools, products, and services.
Who are its members? More than 2,400 electronic life safety, security, and systems businesses in all 50 states and four U.S. territories hold membership in NBFAA. Member companies offer a wide spectrum of services to commercial and residential consumers, including security alarms, fire alarms, alarm system monitoring, CCTV, and access control. NBFAA brings together key individuals from top companies representing five industry components – sales, manufacturing, installation, service, and monitoring. This collective approach allows NBFAA to represent the industry as a whole, while focusing on the varying needs of these individual market sectors.
What does NBFAA do for its members?
Where is NBFAA located?
NBFAA promotes and protects the industry while providing a constant source of information and training to its members. NBFAA holds its members to a higher set of industry standards, as each member company agrees to abide by the association’s bylaws and code of ethics. There are many advantages to holding NBFAA membership, including:
Government Affairs – One of the most important benefits NBFAA offers its member companies is a single, collective voice concerning legislative issues surrounding the electronic life safety, security, and systems industry. NBFAA acts as an industry «watchdog» through its Government Affairs department, consistently monitoring legislation on the local, state, and federal levels. In the event that a threat arises, NBFAA can respond swiftly on a national level to promote and protect the industry and its member companies. NBFAA provides a state licensing guide, which conveys information on licensing requirements throughout the U.S., as well as a weekly report focusing on state legislative issues pertinent to the industry.
Education & Training- The National Training School (NTS), founded by NBFAA in 1985, was established to meet the increasing need for standardized training within the electronic life safety, security, and systems industry. NTS offers NBFAA members a wide range of education and training programs online and in the classroom. This industry training ensures a level of competence for the sales, monitoring, installation, and service of electronic systems, and meets most state licensing requirements.
Networking Opportunities – Through a host of conferences, meetings, and events throughout the year and across the country, NBFAA members have access to top companies in our industry, as well as companies that support the business growth and stability of the member companies. NBFAA offers its members the chance to participate in various committees on the state and national levels.
Communications Services – NBFAA keeps member companies updated on the latest industry information and trends through its communications services. These include Newsline, a quarterly print publication; Member Update, a weekly e-newsletter; Leader Update, a twice-monthly committee report e-newsletter; and, NBFAA’s widely referenced website. Through the ‘Members Only’ section of the NBFAA website, NBFAA members can access state legislative and licensing information, industry research and statistics, and exclusive discounts on business-related products and services, providing a potential savings of thousands of dollars to each NBFAA member.
