System design professionals will benefit from a working knowledge of this process, and it is especially important for those involved in the design-build market.

AFSA’s Convention Committee works hard to provide expert education such as this AFSA38 seminar led by Matt Klaus, NFPA, and Bob Caputo, Fire & Life Safety America.

4. GET MORE, FOR LESS For contractors and exhibitors with an “all-access” registration, three hot breakfasts and three hot lunches are provided free.

This meal offer is valid for one breakfast and one lunch per night reserved at the Bellagio Las Vegas in the AFSA group block.

5. LEARN THE TRICKS AND TRAPS before you take steps to expand your business plan into other areas such as inspections, residential, or storage or with dozens of member-driven educational sessions with hundreds of ideas.
