2022 Spring Meeting Recap

Sunday, April 3, 2022

The IFPS spring meeting, held in Charleston, South Carolina, was conducted in person and virtually. We are excited to report meeting attendance was 90% in person!

The IFPS couldn’t operate without the passion, expertise, time, and effort of the 23 dedicated volunteers who make up our Board of Directors. They have a lot planned for 2022 and are looking for support from the fluid power community. If you have interest or expertise in any of the following areas, please contact Donna Pollander, IFPS Executive Director, by emailing dpollander@ifps.org  Committees meet via conference calls 2-3 times per year.

  • The Certification Committee is looking for volunteers to help with the development of a hydraulic technician certification that will cover both mobile and industrial applications.
  • The Education Committee is looking for volunteers to help increase IFPS educational content (online and in person)
  • The Membership Committee announced the official launch of a Mentorship program. The goal of the Mentorship program is to connect early-career individuals and experienced fluid power professionals. The committee will be looking for mentors and mentees in the upcoming months. Detail will follow.
  • The Marketing Committee is looking for creative-minded volunteers to help with social and digital marketing.

Besides the work accomplished during the meeting, the attendees had some fun too where they enjoyed a carriage ride through historic Charleston, a Fort Sumter tour, and pneumatic bottle races.

The IFPS invites ALL MEMBERS to join in the comradery and networking at our next meeting, September 26-29, 2022, San Diego, Cal. So, mark your calendar!
