PR activities disseminate positive information about the alarm industry to consumer and law enforcement agencies. The GVAA is dedicated to the growth and professionalism of our industry.
One Membership, Two Associations
With one membership, you belong to two associations: The Greater Valley Alarm Association, and the California Alarm Association (CAA). Dues are paid quarterly by electronic debit or invoice.
Frequent Legislative Updates That Impact Your Business
Licensing requirements do change and as a member you are kept informed. We also work on your behalf with cities throughout Merced, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Mariposa, Toulumne, Calveras, Amador, Mono & Alpine Counties and the state of California to watchdog local ordinances (and fines).
“I wanted to learn about the industry and I heard from a police department friend that there was a bay area alarm association in Oakland so I went to a meeting. From there I learned of the WBFAA, now the CAA.”
"I have been able to experience first-hand the benefits of the association and encourage any alarm company to join or attend any CAA event. They are iconic to our industry and they grow and offer members high opportunities for networking and gaining knowledge in our industry.”
Total Monitoring Services
“While working for King Central, I became their Regional Account Manager. I wanted to be aware of what was going on in the industry so I began attending the Sacramento Area Alarm Association meetings. I did not expect the true friendships I have made over the years through the different Associations. I carry some of the people I’ve met through the years very close to my heart.”
