Detroit Regional Meeting Around the Corner

The 2017 NFPA Detroit Regional Meeting is just a few weeks away! Scheduled for Wednesday, May 17, at the Somerset Inn in Troy, Michigan, this year’s meeting will be held over breakfast, allowing you to make the most of your day. In addition to the usual casual networking and knowledge sharing among fluid power colleagues, we have invited Martin LaVelle from the Detroit branch of the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank to give us an update on the manufacturing economy for Michigan and beyond. Martin’s enthusiasm and energy always makes for an interesting presentation.
NFPA Regional Meetings offer a chance to meet with other area fluid power professionals over lunch. NFPA members and non-members alike are welcome to attend and the meetings are free! Learn more, register, and see who has already signed up here: https://nfpahub.com/events/meetings/regional-meetings/.
