Calgary, Alberta, Canada Source: Google Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) has released the second in the series of TESTcast Web-based video Q&A's. Produced by the association's Technical Education Services Team (TEST), it arms viewers with informa- tion on Foundation of FTA's "FIRST 4.0 On the Go!" Regional Workshops that take place throughout the United States for the remainder of 2009. Listeners can tune into the TEST- cast webpage to hear Technical Director Bill Pope and Education Di- rector Joe Tuccitto address questions posed by the industry. Namely: • What is the primary objective of the workshops? • Why should I attend when I already have the book? • My company wants to implement FIRST- how will attending this workshop help? "These Regional Workshops provide an ideal opportunity for those new to FIRST (Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications and Tolerances), as well as for those who want to gain a greater understand- ing of how to go about implementing FIRST in their plants," said Tuccitto. He added, "We've found people are embracing the TESTcasts. Video is simply a more engaging and dy- namic way of disseminating critical information to the masses." "FIRST 4.0 On the Go!" regional workshops are set for Oct. 15 at Dunwoody College of Technology in Minneapolis, MN; and Nov. 4 at the Best Western in Seattle, WA. Future TESTcasts will be unveiled over the coming months. Each will fo- cus on a major portion of FTA's TEST program. The next will spotlight the TEST Virtual Campus, the industry 's most comprehensive Web-based learning medium that offers hundreds of self-paced and instructor-led cours- es such as: Flexo Skills Certification; Health and Safety; Environmental; and Microsoft Office products.

New TESTcast Series Focuses on FIRST Roadshows FTA forms FTA Great Lakes FTA's Supplier Leadership Council recently formed FTA Great Lakes. The group is not a new association, but a gathering of FTA members and non- members who will meet on a regular basis (the first Thursday of every other month) in the Great Lakes region. The effort is the first in what FTA hopes to establish as a series of regional affiliates. FTA Great Lakes will be self supporting by having companies host evening meetings, thus ensuring there are no additional dues. The first meeting will be held at Lauterbach headquarters (W222N5710 Miller Way, Sussex, WI) on Nov. 5. Each meeting will discuss current and up- coming FTA activities, offer a presenta- tion from a guest speaker and provide networking time. For more information contact Doreen M.
