NFPA Future Leaders & Annual Conference—a Perfect Combination

NFPA Future Leaders came out in force to attend the 2015 Annual Conference last month in San Diego. The 30+ Future Leaders attending the conference were able to participate in a special meeting featuring Shyam Kambeyanda, Regional President-Americas, Hydraulics, Eaton Corporation. Shyam’s presentation on lessons in leadership was very well received and prompted several questions and comments from the assembled group. Following this presentation, a special social hour provided a perfect opportunity for participants to become better acquainted. The NFPA Future Leaders Network will convene again in conjunction with the NFPA 2015 Industry and Economic Outlook Conference, scheduled for August 10-12 at the Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL.  Exclusive Future Leaders Network activities in August will include a facility tour of Deltrol Fluid Products, first thing Monday morning, August 10 (followed by the NFPA Invitational Golf Tournament) and a lunch on Tuesday, August 11.  More details coming soon.
