2014 NFPA Industry and Economic Outlook Conference

The 2014 event is now complete and it was another excellent conference!  I commend the NFPA staff for putting on a particularly  useful and fun event.



It kicked off on Monday with a golf outing organized by NFPA staff in conjunction with the Suppliers  Council which I have been privileged to chair for the past two years.  It was an honor to MC the cocktail reception that followed the golf outing and I thank the NFPA for that opportunity.



We raised funds for the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation through our greens fees, sponsorships, and 50-50 raffle.  This money goes toward continuing fluid power education, a very worthy cause.

I also had the privilege of golfing with three very fun colleagues, Steve Schauss of Industrial Hard Chrome, Keith Anderson of Anderson Metals, and David Zimmer of Continental Hydraulics.  We did not win the golf tournament but had a great time.

This is one of the best events of the year!
