| Associate Membership Program
Approved Associate Members are Community Fire Safe Councils that serve in a non-voting advisory capacity to the Board of Directors. One at-large council person is selected from the Associate Members to sit as a voting member on the Board of Directors. Active participation in the Associate Membership Program is highly encouraged.
Your Community Fire Safe Council’s opinions, concerns, and activities are not only important to us and your community, but they are central to what we are striving to accomplish. Without everyone’s involvement, we are less likely to achieve our goals. Working together as partners, we can utilize our combined experience, expertise, and common objectives to ensure our homes, businesses, and communities are well-protected from the perils of wildfire.
