NFPA Offers Workforce Development Activities
The National Fluid Power Association is offering members opportunities to participate in workforce development activities aimed at cultivating the next generation of fluid power professionals.
A number of opportunities to connect with students, review scholarship applications, and more are available in the coming months, including:
- NFPA hosts a virtual networking mixer with Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge participants and members of industry Nov. 5, 12 noon-2 p.m. EST. Taking place in a speed meeting format, this event allows industry representatives to exclusively connect with up to eight students at a time in segmented Zoom breakout rooms. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to participate.
- NFPA needs judges for the Vehicle Challenge. While the opportunity to judge at the April 2022 events is only open to Pascal Donors, members who are not Pascal Donors are invited to judge the Midway Reviews in winter 2021-22 for a chance to experience what the students are working on. Contact email@example.com with questions or to participate.
- Reviewers are needed to review applications for the Fluid Power Scholarship and the Robotics Challenge Scholarship programs. Reviewers should expect to review applications and conduct phone interviews in April, May, and June next year. But interested persons are encouraged to sign up early for these opportunities. Total time commitment to each program is approximately 3-5 hours. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in the Fluid Power Scholarship reviews.
