August CEO Update Highlights Value of Membership

Eric Lanke NFPA CEO

by Eric Lanke
NFPA CEO

For August’s CEO Update, I re-recorded the presentation I gave at the 2015 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference on the assumption that members not able to attend the event in person would be interested in hearing updates to NFPA services and activities. In the presentation, I talk about leadership changes on the NFPA Board of Directors as well as go over the various ways NFPA is working to increase the use of fluid power technology, create an effective forum for members, and provide a robust array of industry statistics programs.
