Welcome! We are glad you found us and we hope you will consider joining the Central Gulf Coast (CGC) chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE). If you are professional in the area of Fire Protection and are not already a member of the SFPE, we would encourage you to review Why Join SFPE? at sfpe.org and join here (annual dues are $215). Of course, that is the parent international engineering society separate from being a member of the local Central Gulf Coast chapter. We would hope that all members of the national society of SFPE that are local to our area would join our the CGC chapter as "Member" grade below.
In addition to those professionals, the CGC chapter of SFPE encourages an even wider audience of individuals that are affiliated with fire protection, but are not members of the SPFE to still consider joining our local chapter as one of the other membership grades. The benefits allow those individuals to keep informed and show support of the organization that is bringing current and relevant speakers and events to the Central Gulf Coast area. The following table represents the various membership grades and associated benefits and costs.
