MBPA is for the professional who seeks continuing knowledge and up-to-date information in this constantly changing field. Local seminars and training sessions are being planned. We are working closely with the Michigan Department of Environmental, Great Lakes and Energy, and the Bureau of Construction Codes to enable membership to receive CEU's for attending and participating in our seminars, conferences and training sessions.


MBPA is composed of experts in cross connection control and those just entering this dynamic field. All levels of professionals can belong to and benefit from MBPA. From legislators who write law, to the federal, state, and local authorities who enforce the laws; from educators who provide training into the field; from engineers and architects who design the systems, to the manufacturers who produce the equipment used in the systems.


MBPA members have the opportunity to serve on, or benefit from, committees that are working to solve problems and address important cross connection control issues and with full voting privleges along with the opportunity to serve as an association leader, you can gain international recognition for your work in the field of cross connection control. All of these opportunities are available to members of the Michigan Backflow Prevention Association.
