Cleveland Rocks a Regional Meeting

After a long hiatus, NFPA came back to Cleveland for a very successful Regional Meeting.  Long a hub of the fluid power industry, the Cleveland fluid power community came out in force to support this networking and educational event. Over 50 people convened at the historic City Club in downtown Cleveland.

cleveland-speakerThe program featured two excellent presenters: Alicia Booker, Vice President, Operations, Workforce, Community and Economic Development at Cuyahoga Community College, and Kim Tillstone, Principal, B & B Management Labs, LLC. Ms. Booker’s presentation provided tangible information on both recruiting and retaining talented employees, while Ms. Tillstone offered insight and tools to help manage data in your sales and operational functions.

Overall, the meeting was a hit. One NFPA member who attended even said, “The Cleveland group are very engaging and open to mutual discussions right out of the gate. The speakers were helpful in opening up new areas of discussions we could use within our own company.”

Cleveland will definitely have a date on the 2017 NFPA Regional Meeting calendar, but in the meantime, don’t forget there is still time to register for the Chicago Regional Meeting scheduled for December 7, at Harper College in Palatine, IL.  Click here for more information or contact Leslie Miller at lmiller@nfpa.com or 414-778-3369.
