Rekindling the Spirit of Innovation – Jeffrey Lumetta, VP Technology, Jabil;

Committees and boards take the lead in directing projects that not only strengthen the fluid power industry, but also provide members with tools for their own success. The 2014 NFPA Annual Conference is the one time when all task force members, board members, committee members, council members and future leaders come together to decide on initiatives, shape the direction of their projects and vote on key decisions.

See YOU There.
