Infragard West Virginia Members Alliance

20th Anniversary of Infragard!

The InfraGard West Virginia Members Alliance (IWVMA) consists of a growing membership of professionals who are creating a more resilient critical infrastructure in West Virginia. Our membership includes representatives from all 16 critical infrastructures, to include the chemical, information technology, water supply systems, energy, emergency services, healthcare and public health, transportation, finance, and telecommunications sectors. Membership is voluntary yet exclusive and is comprised of individuals from both the public and private sector. The main goal of IWVMA is to promote ongoing communication, education, and community outreach between the public and private sectors and the FBI. In doing so, information is shared, relationships are strengthened, and vital assets are protected.
