Last month in Las Vegas, thousands of fire, electrical and building safety professionals joined us in Las Vegas for the annual NFPA Conference & Expo®. One of the newest features at the show was the NFPA
Passport to Section Membership contest. Hundreds of people participated by visiting several designated
locations throughout the show and collecting stamps on their cards. The winner was selected from those that returned their card with the stamps to the NFPA booth for a chance to win a new iPad mini®…And the winner is…..Richard Barlow! Congratulations Richard!
Passports were included in every attendee’s bag and various other locations on the expo floor. Throughout the four days Richard went to at least 3 out of the 4 NFPA Section sponsored events where he collected his stamps. He attended (at least) one of the 200+ education sessions, visited the Section Board members at 1 of the 8 Section tradeshow booths and swung by the NFPA booth to drop off his Passport.
We were so pleased to see such active participation in the launch of this program and to able to get more people acquainted with the NFPA Member Sections. Sections play such an important role by keeping members current on Section specific topics, connected to peers and shaping the NFPA Codes and Standards.
We’re already planning an expanded program for Chicago! By the way the Call for Presentations is open for the 2015 NFPA Conference & Expo. If you or someone you know would like to be a speaker or panelist next year submit a proposal by September 15th!
