NFPA Spring Regional Meeting Dates Announced—Registration Open!

NFPA will be on the road again this spring hosting regional meetings in both the Detroit and Minneapolis areas. Plus, both locations will feature additional fluid power activities beyond our meeting times. As always, NFPA Regional Meetings are free and open to members and non-members alike.

First up is the Detroit Regional Meeting featuring a new location and time for 2015. Macomb Community College in Warren, MI, will host our Detroit meeting on Thursday, March 26, beginning at 11:30 am and wrapping up at 2:00 pm. Also scheduled at Macomb on March 26, is the inaugural Detroit Fluid Power Challenge championed by Master Pneumatic-Detroit. Come early or stay a bit after lunch to watch 44 incredible teams of 8th graders build fluid power devices. Register Today for the Detroit Regional Meeting.

Next on the calendar is the Minneapolis Regional Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 22. This meeting will be held at the Brooklyn Park Campus of Hennepin Technical College. Last year’s meeting at the Eden Prairie campus was such a success we are very pleased to showcase the Brooklyn Park Fluid Power Program and Lab this year. This meeting will start at 11:00 am and conclude at 1:30 pm. Fluid Power events happening around the NFPA Regional include a Fluid Power Career Fair at Brooklyn Park the afternoon of April 22 and the Fluid Power Skills Competition at the Eden Prairie campus on April 23.
