NFPA continues its Chicago Regional Meeting series on December 11, 2013, at a new location - Triton College, River Grove, IL. Triton College, one of NFPA’s newest Community College members, is conveniently located 7 miles south of the O’Hare Airport for easy drive-in or airport access.

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.  We encourage all representatives of NFPA member companies (regardless of geographic location) to not only attend, but also invite guests---customers, suppliers or distributors.

The program will begin at 11:00 am 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 pm. 

Triton's Engineering and Mechatronics Lab Tour
Antigone Sharris, Coordinator, Engineering Technology at Triton College, will provide a tour of the 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, through 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 the talent.

One-On-One Discussions
Eric Armstrong, NFPA’s Economic and Statistical Services Manager, will once again be on hand to talk one-on-one about NFPA's Market Information Services.  Anyone interested in sitting down with Eric privately before or after the lunch meeting, please contact him directly at 414-778-3372 or
