Massachusetts Association Aligns With NBFAA
SILVER SPRING, Md. and WILMINGTON, Mass.
The board of directors of the Massachusetts Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (MBFAA) has voted to reaffiliate with the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA), bringing the number of NBFAA state associations to 40.
The MBFAA board believes very strongly that joining NBFAA as an Affiliated Alarm Association is a good fit for our association. We are very pleased to be taking this positive step forward,” says David Duval, president of MBFAA and Protective Services Inc. in Lunenburg, Mass.
MBFAA is the first state to join NBFAA as an Affiliated Alarm Association (AAA), a new state association category designed by NBFAA in 1999 to encourage NBFAA affiliations in all 50 U.S. states. MBFAA dropped its NBFAA Chartered State Association (CSA) status in 1997 when it seemed companies new to the industry in Massachusetts were not willing to join MBFAA or any association that required the payment of state and national dues.
“NBFAA is quickly moving toward reaching its goals of achieving affiliation with a strong local association in every state, and of expanding our membership penetration to at least 50 percent of all industry dealers,” adds Bart Didden, NBFAA president.
