The NBFAA considered a number of possible sites in several states.
â€œThis is a positive step for our association,â€ said Merlin Guilbeau, NBFAA executive director. â€œFrom DFW International Airport, we can travel anywhere in the continental United States within four hours or less. The regionâ€™s central time zone provides added flexibility in supporting and servicing our members, and the savings on facility costs alone will translate into better programs and enhanced deliverables for our membership.â€
The new headquarters will be located at 2300 Valley View Lane, Suite 230, Irving, Texas 75062. The NBFAAâ€™s National Training School (NTS) and government relations programs will remain in their current locations in Pennsylvania and Washington , D.C.
â€œRelocation is something we have been considering and studying for some time,â€ explained Scot Colby, NBFAA president. â€œThe committee also employed a return on investment analysis.â€
