We have two types of memberships: Regular and Associate. Any representative of government or a business or industrial individual who is actively engaged in some phase of the suppression of fire or administration of justice (including private fire investigators) shall be eligible for membership if they are 21 years of age or older. Those applying for regular membership must receive the recommendation from a current member (You may email the Association President if you do not know someone). Associate members are those not qualified for regular membership and cannot vote, hold office, or receive regular member pricing on training events. Charter memberships are for those members who joined the association between May 1999 and Sept. 2000. The Board of Directors votes on memberships.
