2016 Chicago Regional Meeting Date Announced

Network with the entire fluid power supply chain in Chicago this December


NFPA’s 2016 Chicago Regional Meeting is on the calendar and registration is open!

Scheduled over lunch on Wednesday, December 7, the Chicago Regional meeting will again be held at Harper College in Palatine, IL, conveniently located just west of Il-Hwy 53 on Algonquin Road.
Brad Terry Headshot
This year’s program will feature Brad Terry, Principal with The Keystone Group as presenter. Brad will review common pitfalls that manufacturing companies face in the Sales & Operations Planning process. By definition, the S&OP process touches multiple functions within every organization, and is commonly where symptoms such as excess inventory, customer delivery issues, high overtime costs, expediting fees, and many others manifest themselves. Brad will share actionable takeaways and be happy to address questions.

As with all NFPA Regional Meetings, this event is FREE and open to members and non-members alike. Feel free to invite your colleagues from the industry. Register for the meeting here.

Can’t make it to Chicago? NFPA will also be in Cleveland November 16 at The City Club. Find out more here.
