Video: A Holiday Message from NFPA

Eric Lanke NFPA CEO



by Eric Lanke
NFPA President/CEO

In the last CEO video of 2016 and in the spirit of the season, I take the opportunity to look back on the successes and changes of the past year while also looking ahead to what’s in store for 2017.  As outlined in the upcoming Mid Term Report, 2016 meant:

  • Continuing to build an effective forum for members to come together;
  • Expanding the menu of statistics programs;
  • Providing more ways for members to promote fluid power;
  • Establishing more programs to help build the fluid power workforce.

We look forward to continuing these activities and more in the upcoming year.
