Miller takes over as NBFAA prez
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Mike Miller will be welcomed as the new president of the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association during the ESX conference here, at an incoming ceremony on June 25.
The ceremony will be part of the NBFAAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s annual membership meeting that evening. Miller, who is president of Moon Security Services of Pasco, Wash., will officially take over the role on July 1 from outgoing president George Gunning.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to continuing the legacy [of the NBFAA] and continuing to strengthen the infrastructure of the organization,Ã¢â‚¬Â Miller said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Everything we do is member-benefit related and we really emphasize training. The NTS [the National Training School] is one of our jewels,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. He said heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s committed to Ã¢â‚¬Å“working really hard to provide the support and dollars needed to upgrade classes [and to ensure] what we are training for is relevant for todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s security market and todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s needs. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a big issue for us,Ã¢â‚¬Â he explained.
In addition, Miller wants to continue to expand Security America, NBFAAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s insurance program, and the trade organizationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s government relations program. He also wants to Ã¢â‚¬Å“continue the strong relationships the NBFAA has with other organizationsÃ¢â‚¬Â such as SIA and the CSAA. Ã¢â‚¬Å“All the acronyms,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
The NBFAAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“new jewel is ESX,Ã¢â‚¬Â Miller said, calling the new trade show an opportunity for members to learn and invest in the industry at the same time. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to be power-packed with information from an educational standpoint. Operations, sales and management-everyone will be satisfied.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Miller will serve a two-year term as president. Next June, a new president-in-waiting will be elected to take over for Miller in 2010.
Sounds like MillerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got a lot on his plate? Ã¢â‚¬Å“We do have a lot to do,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Thankfully, the NBFAA has a Ã¢â‚¬Å“good staff thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable and can be a resource for our members.Ã¢â‚¬Â
