Moraine Valley Community College, 2017 NFPA Chicago Regional

Moraine Valley Community College

NFPA’s 2017 Chicago Regional Meeting will convene at Moraine Community College in Palos Hills, easily accessible right off I-294. Moraine County is the second largest Community College in the state of Illinois. Moraine Valley is one of 12 community colleges nationwide recognized as a national Vanguard Learning College. This designation indicates that the college is learning-centered and actively works to advance teaching and learning at the college. Plus the school has a very robust fluid power curriculum and a popular Integrated Systems Technology program under the direction of Neil Barker, MS, Program Coordinator.

Our program will feature not only a tour of Moraine Valley’s fluid power lab, but also a presentation by Tamima Farooqui, Job Resource Specialist. Tamima will share ideas on how companies can better take advantage of the opportunities schools like Moraine offer to companies in need of workers.

What hasn’t changed for this meeting is the great, casual networking available to both NFPA members and non-members alike. Hear how your colleagues, and even competitors, view the current business climate and catch up fluid power industry news. And as always these meetings are free!
