Find a Firestop Professional


For the Association to thrive and grow, it needs good leaders, strong leadership. In 1999, a group of 7 dedicated people came together and charted the direction for the Association that laid the groundwork for sustainable growth and stability for both the Association and the industry. This group was the FCIA Steering Committee. Since then, FCIA Contractor Members have continued to volunteer their time and talents for the FCIA Board of Directors.

FCIA’s Board of Directors is a very diverse and passionate group of Contractors. Each person has chosen to give back to the Association through serving on the Board, participating on Committee(s), and more.


Voting is now open for the 2023 FCIA Board of Directors. 

FCIA is electing TWO people to the 2023 FCIA Board of Directors, to serve from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2025.  Board Members volunteer their time, resources, and expertise as a Director.  They are NOT paid for their time.
