The Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association (RLPSA) and the Foodservice Industry Risk Association (FIRMA) have merged into one organization that will provide year-round loss prevention, risk, and safety educational resources.
This new organization will be led by the RLPSA board, with three dedicated board seats for FIRMA representatives. Amber Bradley will continue to serve as the executive director for the merged association.
“RLPSA is extremely excited to add FIRMA’s expertise to our growing market presence,” said Octavio Jara, president of RLPSA. “With RLPSA’s growth over the past few years welcoming the nation’s largest brands as well as within the franchisee community, it became clear that we should broaden our educational offering. The FIRMA organization has been well respected for decades as the risk and safety experts. It’s a perfect fit.”
“FIRMA has proven expertise that truly complements the RLPSA educational platform,” said Michael Simmons, president of FIRMA. “We believe by utilizing the strength of RLPSA’s administrative backbone coupled with its growing membership, FIRMA will continue its laser focus on providing outstanding risk and safety education to support the foodservice industry.”
The breadth of the newly merged organizations will be on full display at RLPSA’s Annual Conference April 10-13, 2022. in downtown Denver. Visit www.RLPSA.com for more information.
