MSFA Announces Official Name Change

Official Statement from the President

June 19, 2024

To All Member Companies:

On the 18th of June, 2024, a historic event took place. The membership of this great
Association voted to approve the proposed name change of the Maryland State Firemen’s
Association to the Maryland State Firefighters Association.

Through several years of conversations and debates, this Association addressed the need
for a change to its name to more adequately reflect the members to which it so proudly
serves. At the 132nd Annual Convention and Conference, that change became a reality.

The change will not affect the “MSFA” acronym and no changes will be made to the seal
that we display, keeping the rich history of the Association intact.

The Association will work diligently to promptly prepare the necessary documents to
facilitate the change within the State of Maryland and the IRS and other pertinent
agencies to ensure that our business is minimally impacted. Over the next several months,
updates to our Association’s Constitution, bylaws, legal documents, websites, and all
other manners of communication will take place. We will keep our Member Companies
apprised of this progress as it is made.

We truly appreciate the involvement of our Member Companies in this process and we
are confident that this change helps to keep moving the Association forward.

Yours in service,
W. Newton “Skip” Carey, Jr.
President, Maryland State Firefighters Association
