Newsletters and Meeting Information
Thank you for your interest in the Florida Chapter of the IFPS. Chapter 49 and Chapter 50 combined in the spring of 2008 and regularly hold meetings in Central Florida, usually along the I4 corridor.
Chapter meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of January, March, May, September, and either November or December. Our meetings start approximately 6.30 p.m. Officer elections are held during our last meeting of the year. Central Florida IFPS members have the opportunity to be voted into committee positions.
When possible our meetings are held where fluid power can be seen in action, or in a facility where there is a guest speaker or activities that include education and training.
Past meetings have taken us behind the scenes at the Disney parks where we get a first-hand view of pneumatics, hydraulics, and animatronics working in combination with advanced computer circuitry.
Local Chapter meetings allow us, as fluid power professionals, to gather, network, and swap experiences, as well as listen to guest speakers who share new technologies in the industry or reinforce our existing knowledge.
Attendance at these meetings also allows our certified members to accumulate points required for recertification.
Chapter 49 is heavily involved in supporting the FIRST Robotics Competition. Our chapter supported three (3) separate high school teams last year.
