The IFPS was recently inducted into the National Fluid Power Association’s (NFPA) Education and Technology Foundation Legacy Builders Club.
This recognition is for all donors to the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation whose cumulative donations have reached $25,000 or more. Each year, a new class of Legacy Builders is inducted into this elite club. The IFPS was inducted into the Class of 2018 during NFPA’s recent Annual Conference.
“The IFPS is honored to receive this prestigious award. Part of the IFPS mission is to ensure the longevity and sustainability of fluid power technology. We believe education and training play a big part,” said Donna Pollander, ACA, Executive Director.
NFPA’s Education and Technology Foundation works to create more educated fluid power technicians by funding student outreach and education programs designed to create a pathway into the fluid power industry. It also helps create more educated fluid power engineers by funding research and education programs designed to better engage academic faculty in the teaching of fluid power. Its programs include Fluid Power Action Challenge events for middle school students, and scholarships for high school, technical school and university students, as well as grants to 2-year technical schools and 4-year universities to help support training labs and develop curriculum.
