Mark Your Calendars for Tuesday, April 1, 2014
NFPA has added a NEW Regional Meeting to its 2014 Event Schedule. For the first time, we will convene in Minneapolis—a true hub of the fluid power industry. On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, Hennepin Technical College—Eden Prairie Campus, will host the inaugural NFPA Minneapolis Regional Meeting. Hennepin Technical College has one of the premier A.A.S. fluid power programs in the country. Instructor Ernie Parker and his students will provide an inside look at how they are creating the next generation of fluid power professionals.
NFPA Regional Meetings are free, networking/educational events designed to bring together NFPA members and non-members alike. This meeting will be scheduled a few hours over lunch so you don’t need to block your entire day. If you were planning on some customer visits in the Minneapolis area, we encourage you to fly-in and attend the Regional Meeting.
