We are excited to announce the following dates and locations have been set for the NFPA 2015 Detroit and Minneapolis Regional Meetings. Both of these meetings will be held in conjunction with other fluid power events at their respective locations, giving attendees even more reason to attend.

At Hennepin Technical College in April, a Fluid Power Career Fair is being held at the Brooklyn Park Campus on April 22 as well as the Minnesota Fluid Power Skills Competition at the Eden Prairie Campus on April 23.

Registration for both these events will be open beginning on February 2 and as always NFPA Regional Meetings are free and open to members and non-members alike. Questions? Contact Leslie Miller at (414) 778-3369 or
