We work aggressively in state and local legislatures for positive fire safety requirements, as well as watching for legislation that may be detrimental to merit shop contractors.
We are also here to help bring news, events, initiatives, and training opportunities to the local level.
The local chapter will also provide terrific networking opportunities with industry leaders and manufacturer/supplier associates.
The Greater Bay Area Chapter has participated in a few trade shows throughout California. The Sac Valley Trade Show in Lincoln, CA and the California Fire Chiefs Association in Buellton, CA. We also hold our Oktoberfest Manufactures Presentation in Livermore, CA.
Here we meet local contractors, manufacturers, distributors and authorities having jurisdiction. We spread the word of the American Fire Sprinkler Association in hopes to bring all the benefits to the merit shop fire protection industry.

At these meetings you can hear from speakers about your state legislative issues, local AHJs about city and county regulations, fire protection manufacturers with new and improved fire protection products, the Local Chapter Board of Directors and so much more.
