Conference Information

2017 Annual Conference

The alarm industry is a growing, dynamic business that fills an important need. Alarm technology changes at a rapid pace. New competitive challenges seem to come along every day. You need an inside track to keep ahead. The Burglar and Fire Alarm Association of Michigan (BFAAM) is that inside track.

Join us on October 12 at the MotorCity Casino and Hotel in Detroit, MI, for the 2017 Burglar and Fire Alarm Associations’ Annual Conference. We are excited to return to the Detroit area, at a new location with revitalized content!

During our conference, we will be bringing the issues we all face to the forefront and work together to solve them. We will hear directly from the Chief of Police and Fire Marshall about what’s relevant, critical code factors and how we can work better together. We will also learn about Do It Yourself Alarms and
What We Can Do About it. You do not want to miss out!
