Euralarm calls for associate members to join organisation

Prior to organising its Extraordinary General Assembly and following a decision of its members, Euralarm has opened the doors for Associate Members to work with the organisation.

Euralarm-AssociateMembership-2050 years after its founding, Euralarm is calling for stakeholders who want to contribute to the organisation’s goals and priorities to become associate members. Stakeholders may include research organisations, certification bodies, associations, insurance companies and consumer organisations.

Until now, membership was open for national associations and companies who wanted to tap into the expertise of Euralarm and understand how EU and local policy is impacting the fire safety and security industry. The associate membership now allows for companies to make personal connections with technical and political experts, share expertise and influence standardisation and legislative processes. Members will also have direct access to Euralarm documentation and are invited to network with experts during the annual Euralarm Symposium and other events.

An associate member has an observer status and therefore has no voting rights or rights to chair a section or committee. Associate members have the right to participate in the activities of the association and its sections and have access to relevant section and cross-sectional information. Candidate associate organisations that are interested to join Euralarm can send their application in writing to the General Management or visit the Euralarm website for more information.

The organisation provides leadership for the fire safety, security and extinguishing industry, and expertise for policy makers and standardisation bodies. The European association supports pro-actively a Single European Market strategy for the sector. As part of that strategy, Euralarm has a local team in Brussels.
