Regular Membership with The CAA

Electronic security and life safety companies in California gain exclusive access to industry training, networking events, legislative updates, special discounts and more for regions throughout the state. 

Boost Your Business With the CAA

Many companies join the CAA for a specific purpose: to save by leveraging increased purchasing power, to network, to gain access to industry-specific sales coaching, exchange ideas and best practices, etc. Once they join, though, they find the association holds many more opportunities to dive into. CAA Membership Benefits are customized to powerfully impact small, medium and large businesses throughout California.

Your membership includes the California Alarm Association and one local state chapter association. Quarterly dues for regular members start at just $133 depending on your company size.

1 Membership, 2 Associations

With one membership, you belong to two associations: (1) a Local Alarm Association, and (2) the California Alarm Association (CAA). Dues are paid quarterly by electronic debit or invoice. 

Legislative Updates

Licensing requirements do change and as a member you are kept informed. We also work on your behalf with cities throughout 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.”

"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.”
