BICSI and NBFAA Sign Honorary Friendship Agreement

Publish date:

ORLANDO, FL-BICSI and the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) entered into an honorary friendship agreement to promote further growth and development of global information transport systems (ITS) and Electronic Life Safety and Security (ELSS) systems. The official agreement was signed by Edward J. Donelan, RCDD, NTS, TLT, BICSI president, and Michael Miller, president of NBFAA.

"This agreement creates new opportunity for our members, between industries, in a time of rapid technology integration and fast moving business developments," Donelan says. "We look forward to a future complete with great reciprocal working relationships with all the professional members in the highly regarded NBFAA. As a result of this agreement, our training, education, and certification are paramount to demonstrate a high degree of competence and professionalism."

The two organizations plan to engage in a variety of cooperative activities, including exchanging visits and views between the members of the two entities in order to promote a qualified and skilled work force; promoting and developing reciprocal training, education, and certifications of ITS and ELSS design and installation professionals; and pursuing other cooperative activities as appropriate.

BICSI believes that this relationship will enhance and expand BICSI"s dedicated outreach and also will add significantly to its NxtGEN Outreach Programs. NBFAA sees this relationship as the quickest, most efficient approach to widening the educational horizons for the members of both associations.

"NBFAA is excited at the prospect of offering our members an even greater selection of education and training to build a bridge between technologies that are fast becoming the cornerstone of the solutions they provide. We also look forward to offering training, education and certification to BICSI professionals to help them to capitalize on the integration of the IT and the electronic security worlds. Rapid technological advances make partnerships like this one a vital part of our workforce development effort," says Miller.

BICSI previously signed similar friendship agreements with InfoComm in 2005, and TIA in 2006 and again in 2008. Cross-functional relationships among entities with common goals add significantly to the benefits offered to the membership of these organizations. BICSI will continue to reach out to like-minded groups in an endeavor to enhance the knowledge base of their membership.
