NFPA and CCEFP have common goals to develop a qualified workforce and to overcome technical barriers of fluid power technology while providing a pre-competitive environment to share ideas that will advance the industry.  We hope you will support us in this effort by engaging with each other -- students, researchers and industry members alike.

The meeting will be held the same week as the ASME/Bath Symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control. This gives you the opportunity to see fluid power research results from all over the world.  Many of the overseas visitors to the symposium will also be attending the CCEFP Annual Meeting.

You will have the opportunity to meet faculty and students from Georgia Institute of Technology, Milwaukee School of Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University, Purdue University, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), University of Minnesota, and Vanderbilt University, all of whom are members of the CCEFP.     

We have planned the following events specifically tailored for industry interests:

  • Resume Sharing (Send an HR rep at the special 1-day rate)
  • Presentations on Sustainability, Commercialization, Government Funding, Workforce Development and CCEFP-NFPA Collaboration
  • Poster Show and Networking
We have also planned an evening dinner cruise, but space is limited so be sure to register early!

We know this event will prove to be a valuable experience for you and hope to see you there!
