Greater Bay Area Chapter of the AFSA

The Greater Bay Area Chapter is a local chapter of the American Fire Sprinkler Association that covers an area from Sonoma County to San Luis Obispo County to Fresno County and everything in between. 

Your GBA Chapter involvement increases your awareness of developments in the region where you do business and it increases public awareness through local events and charitable contributions such as Chapter golf tournaments/fundraisers.

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 help to bring AFSA 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.


TRADE SHOWS

The Greater Bay Area Chapter participates in a few trade shows throughout California.  The Sac Valley Trade Show in Lincoln, CA and the California Fire Chiefs Association in Buellton, 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.


QUARTERLY MEETINGS

AND

CA CEU CLASSES

The Greater Bay Area Chapter holds 4 meetings per year, each at a different location so to allow any and all members to attend.  Since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic, we are holding virtual meetings in order to still bring you updates within the industry.  At these meetings you can hear from speakers about your state legislative issues, some local AHJs about city and county regulations, fire protection manufacturers with new and improved fire protection products, AFSA National representatives, the local chapter board members and so much more.



EVENTS

The Greater Bay Area Chapter holds several events throughout the year.

There is an Annual Charity Golf Tournament in July with proceeds going towards the Santa Clara County Medical Burn Center through the VMC Foundation.

An Oktoberfest and Manufacturers Presentation in the Fall.  

Plus a Annual Grand Prix family event in December.
