December 2020 NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference
December 3, 2020 | 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Central Time)
Virtual Delivery

With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic still influencing nearly every aspect of our personal and professional life, being prepared for what’s next is crucial. At the December 3 NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference, you’ll get the insights you need to navigate an ever-changing world for your business. Presented by NFPA and MSOE’s Fluid Power Industrial Consortium (FPIC), the conference will focus on a topic more valuable now than ever before: “Fluid Power Business Adaptability in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) Business World.”

The half-day conference will focus on effective solutions to unexpected problems with presentations featuring real-world examples from the experts who experienced them.

The conference will be conducted via an online platform, but in response to member feedback, we are working to secure a new platform that offers additional networking opportunities.

The conference will feature several expert speakers of varying backgrounds, as well as a panelist Q&A session. Presentation details for the event will be released soon.
