Video Transcript:

This month I want to bring to your attention the latest addition to NFPA’s series of regional meetings.

It’s an event that’s going to be held September 17, 2015, right here in NFPA’s headquarter city of Milwaukee.

We’ve been doing regional meetings for a number of years now—in Detroit, in Chicago, recently in Minneapolis, and now in Milwaukee.

They are all casual events that allow NFPA members from across the region to get together, network with each other, and learn something about NFPA and the many services we provide.

They also typically feature a presenter, and the event in Milwaukee will be no exception.

On September 17, we’ll hear from Karin Smith, President/CEO of a firm called CommUNITY Connections.

She’ll introduce us to a new talent development tool, Inspire Southeast Wisconsin, an online resource that is starting to connect students and schools to local employers in Wisconsin.

It’s a model that works for employers in Wisconsin and can be replicated for employers in other regions.

Should be some helpful information.

We encourage you to join us.

Even if you’re not in Southeast Wisconsin, you may have customers here, and many of our members find success in coupling customer visits with their attendance at these regional meetings.

Full information and registration details will be at the link included with this video.

We hope to see you there.

Thanks for listening.
