NFPA Creates New Education Committees – Volunteers Needed

It’s exciting to a see a growing number of schools, educators and students connecting with NFPA through our workforce development programs.  To better serve these groups, NFPA is restructuring its Education Committee into three separate Committees to provide more focused direction and guidance to activities at each level of education.  And, we need volunteers to help serve on these new Committees.  Please tell us where you’d like to be involved:

  1. Middle and High School Education Committee: Fostering awareness and involvement of middle and high school students, helping them understand fluid power’s potential as a technology and choose fluid power as a career path.
  1. Technical School Education Committee: Increasing the number of technically trained people capable of integrating and applying fluid power, and connecting them to careers in the fluid power industry.
  1. University Education Committee: Supporting universities in the development of fundamental fluid power knowledge and connecting our industry to an increasing number of scientific and engineering leaders in our field.

For more information or to join one of these Committees, please contact Sue Chase at or 414-778-3376.
