New for 2013! NFPA continues its Regional Meeting series on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at a new location—Triton College, River Grove, IL.
We are excited to use their facilities for the 2013 Chicago Regional as it will allow everyone to see what a vital resource Community and Technical colleges are in filling your workforce needs for today and the future. Triton College, one of NFPA’s newest Community College members, is conveniently located just 7 miles south of O’Hare for easy drive-in or airport access.
Plus, Antigone Sharris, Coordinator, Engineering Technology at Triton College will provide a tour of their labs and a short overview of how Triton’s students prepare to be your future employees. This will include a presentation and discussion on how the federal government, thru the TAA2 grant, is helping ensure that area community colleges under this grant are able to tool up and partner with area businesses to supply you with needed/wanted talent.
Always free and scheduled to fit within your busy workday, NFPA Regional Meetings are a casual yet effective way to meet other fluid power colleagues. And, we encourage all representatives of NFPA member companies (regardless of geographic location) to not only attend, but also invite guests—customers, suppliers or distributors. These events are open to non-members so please share this email. The 2013 Chicago Regional program will begin at 11:00 with introductions and everyone’s brief business update, followed by lunch and a tour of Triton’s Engineering and Mechatronics lab. We will finish by 2:00 pm.
In addition, for those who would have questions about NFPA’s Market Information Services, Eric Armstrong, NFPA’s Economic and Statistical Services Manager, will be on hand to talk one-on-one with any interested parties prior to the main luncheon program. Anyone interested in sitting down with Eric privately before or after the lunch meeting, please contact him directly at (414) 778-3372 or email@example.com.
