New Association Offers Membership Incentives
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 | Comments

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Association (FNA) announced three new initiatives to boost membership.

The first program is designed to give back to three causes within the first responder community, including the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International Sunshine fund, which provides financial aid to telecommunicators and immediate family members who are in need of support; the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, which provides programs and resources for the families for fallen firefighters and for the fire service; and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which aims to make life safer for those who serve.

For every public-safety professional who joins the FirstNet Association, 1 percent of the registration fee will be donated to the charity that most closely associates with his or her discipline.

"We sincerely appreciate the work our fellow organizations have done for those brave women and men who are responsible for keeping our communities safe," said Al Gillespie, president of the association. "We are excited to contribute to these existing programs, and will continue to seek out new and innovative ways to give back to our brothers and sisters in the public-safety space."

FNA also offered two exclusive benefits to individuals who join the association during the remainder of 2018. Signing up by Dec. 31, 2018, will lock in an annual membership fee of $45 for the life of the membership. In addition, FNA will waive attendance fees for any FirstNet Association event until Dec. 31, 2019.

"If for any reason, FNA changes its dues structure, those individuals who register this year will be guaranteed our $45 annual fee for as long as they choose to remain a member," said Richard Mirgon, vice president and treasurer for the FirstNet Association. "Those same members are welcome to attend any event, free of charge, until the end of next year."
