Mark the Date! First-Ever NFPA Milwaukee Regional Gathering – September 17, 2015

Milwaukee Regional Gathering at the Iron Horse HotelWhen is an NFPA Regional Meeting not a Regional Meeting?  When it’s in Milwaukee of course.  Scheduled for Thursday, September 17, beginning at 2:00 pm, this meeting will offer attendees a look at a unique workforce development program. Karin Smith, President/CEO, CommUNITY Connections, Inspire Southeast Wisconsin, will present.  Ms. Smith will explain how Inspire Southeast Wisconsin, a web-based tool, connects students and schools to local employers.

And, taking a cue from some of our favorite things about Milwaukee, the first ever NFPA Milwaukee Regional Gathering will feature a Happy Hour vibe and be held at the one-of-a-kind Iron Horse Hotel.

NFPA Regional Meetings are free and open to members and non-members alike. These meetings are held in geographic areas where there is a concentration of fluid power companies. However, all fluid power industry representatives are welcome to attend regardless of geographic location.  Register Today!
