Why Join The Association?

Management Programs

Education seminars and training are scheduled in various locations throughout the state. In addition, access to online webinars & classes are available exclusively to GGAA members. 

Networking Opportunities

Meetings at your local and state conventions give you the opportunity to meet in workshops and seminars with your peers to learn and to exchange ideas on topics relative to your business. Network!


PR activities disseminate positive information about the alarm industry to consumer and law enforcement agencies. The GGAA is dedicated to the growth and professionalism of our industry.

One Membership, Two Associations

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

Frequent Legislative Updates That Impact Your Business

Licensing requirements do change and as a member you are kept informed. We also work on your behalf with cities throughout San Francisco and San Mateo County and the state of California to watchdog local ordinances (and fines).

Rod Uffindell
Denelect Alarm

“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.”

Chuck Petruska
Advanced Alarm

"I have been able to experience first-hand the benefits of the association and encourage any alarm company to join or attend any CAA event. They are iconic to our industry and they grow and offer members high opportunities for networking and gaining knowledge in our industry.”

Dawn Smith
Total Monitoring Services

“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.”

Together, We Can Achieve More!

These are only some of the benefits derived from membership with The Golden Gate Alarm Association. Benefiting your bottom line, enhancing your professionalism, and working with your industry colleagues are the common values that we all share.
