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 NBFAA’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.

“I’m looking forward to continuing the legacy [of the NBFAA] and continuing to strengthen the infrastructure of the organization,” Miller said.

“Everything we do is member-benefit related and we really emphasize training. The NTS [the National Training School] is one of our jewels,” he said. He said he’s committed to “working really hard to provide the support and dollars needed to upgrade classes [and to ensure] what we are training for is relevant for today’s security market and today’s needs. That’s a big issue for us,” he explained.

In addition, Miller wants to continue to expand Security America, NBFAA’s insurance program, and the trade organization’s government relations program. He also wants to “continue the strong relationships the NBFAA has with other organizations” such as SIA and the CSAA. “All the acronyms,” he said.

The NBFAA’s “new jewel is ESX,” Miller said, calling the new trade show an opportunity for members to learn and invest in the industry at the same time. “It’s going to be power-packed with information from an educational standpoint. Operations, sales and management-everyone will be satisfied.”

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 Miller’s got a lot on his plate? “We do have a lot to do,” he said. Thankfully, the NBFAA has a “good staff that’s enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable and can be a resource for our members.”
