In his first official remarks to attendees at the NFPA Conference & Expo in Chicago, President Jim Pauley shared examples – historically, globally, and locally – of how NFPA and its members have been at the forefront of fire and life safety for nearly 120 years.
But as times changes, he said, with new safety challenges, NFPA needs to continually ask itself – Who are we? What do we do? How do we do it? And how can we have the greatest impact? Mr. Pauley described a long-range strategic planning effort that helped the association identify its “end point”.
“Through this process, we had lots of discussion of what we aspire to be, what our view is of an ideal future state, our vision for NFPA,” he said.
