The last meeting was held at Panera Bread in Lake Buena Vista on May 20th at 6.30 p.m.
Yet again it was a very well attended meeting with many members taking advantage of some of the great sandwiches provided by Panera Bread.
Most of the attendees and the Committee Members all agreed that this was one of the best and most productive meetings held so far due to the recent increase and participation of local IFPS members.
A large part of the meeting was dedicated to an update from Greg George about recent training programs were held in Central Florida as well as future programs that will be offered in the coming months.
A recent Specialist Review course held in Orlando was well attended. The course required a commitment of nine nights tutoring provided by Greg George plus study time. There will be more training offered in the near future by Greg that requires an eighteen night study course which will be open to all Central Florida Chapter Members.
For further details about the dates and the costs involved in these training programs, please contact Greg George at Gregory.K.George@disney.com
Other topics discussed included a behind the scenes tour of a ride at one of the major local theme parks and how to create awareness of the advantages of being IFPS Certified. Also discussed was the idea of members contacting their local technical schools in regard to their curriculum about fluid power and their involvement with educational programs within this Chapter.
