Through the Speaker's Bureau program, NFPA connects its member volunteers to schools for in-person or virtual classroom presentations. It’s a great way for students to not only learn more about the fluid power industry and their career options, but to also network with potential employers.
NFPA Educator Partners can request speakers with specific knowledge or in a particular part of the fluid power industry. They have told us that hearing from industry professionals impacts students as they consider various career paths.
If you are looking to have a speaker join your classroom, please contact the Workforce Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Industry professionals may use their own presentation materials or NFPA's draft presentation template.
Successful presentations focus on personal education and job experience, what a company does (including real-world examples of fluid power technologies and the markets they serve), company culture, and the many exciting careers currently available.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please get in touch with the Workforce Team at email@example.com.
