“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.”
