Open Call for Participants – the First Meeting of the NFPA Membership Committee

NFPA’s new Membership Committee will help NFPA achieve our inclusive membership vision “in which manufacturers and distributors enjoy equal status as dues-paying, voting members, supported by substantial involvement from suppliers, educators and customers.”

The NFPA Membership Committee is charged with helping NFPA achieve this vision by:

  • Monitoring the extent to which membership is representative of the industry, with particular emphasis on distributors and manufacturers;
  • Identifying areas of focus for membership recruitment efforts to help strengthen representativeness of NFPA membership, whether in terms of membership type, technology areas, geography or other company attributes;
  • Reviewing existing membership category descriptions and making recommendations for changes aimed at clarifying distinctions and ensuring the categories reflect actual relationships among industry participants;
  • Offering insights into membership recruitment tactics.

Interested in participating, or need more information? Contact Pete Alles at (414) 778-3350 or Or just join us at our first NFPA Membership Committee meeting, held at the 2015 Annual Conference, from 2:30-3:30 pm, March 11 in San Diego. The meeting is open to all members.
