Foundation Update Highlights Value of Fluid Power Education Efforts

Eric Lanke NFPA CEO


by Eric Lanke

For this year’s Foundation Update, I re-recorded the presentation I gave at the 2015 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference assuming that members not able to attend the event in person would be interested in hearing updates to the NFPA Foundation’s services and activities. In the presentation, I talk about various programs to engage students at all education levels in fluid power activities, grow the fluid power workforce, and enhance fluid power research. I also give an update on the status of the Pascal Society.

A downloadable PDF version of the Donor Impact Report referenced in the video is available here.
