AFSA Carolinas History
Past, Present And Future
Shortly after the formation of AFSA National in 1981, several fire sprinkler contractors in the NC/SC area began discussing the formation of a local chapter. An early meeting consisting of Randy Price, Tom Waller, Andy Anderson, Dorrell Ford, C.O. Hipp and William C. Kluttz (among others), initiated the movement that was to become the AFSA Carolinas Chapter, Inc. (usually referred to as the Carolinas Chapter).
Incorporated in July 1984, the first officers of our Chapter were Dorrell Ford, C.O. Hipp, Randy Price and William C. Kluttz. As with any organization, growth and change were inevitable, and soon after the Carolinas Chapter was formed diversity and growth spurred changes from within. These changes resulted in the creation of the South Carolina Fire Sprinkler Association (SCFSA), which now operates as a separate entity but with whom we proudly share a common bloodline. The AFSA Carolinas Chapter, Inc. (Carolinas Chapter) is headquartered in High Point, NC and covers the state of North Carolina.
