The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is proud to announce the selection of the Executive Leadership Program (ELP) class of 2020 participants, continuing NPMA’s commitment to prepare rising stars for association leadership roles and develop successful ambassadors for our industry.


“As proven with the previous three ELP classes, the curriculum presents a fantastic opportunity for these aspiring association leaders to grow professionally and personally. In turn, NPMA benefits by hearing fresh perspectives and establishing a pipeline of engaged members. It’s truly a win-win situation,” stated NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “I look forward to working with this new group of participants and witnessing their many successes for years to come.”

This March, National Pest Management Association members will climb Capitol Hill in Washington, DC to meet with their members of Congress at Legislative Day 2020 – providing opportunities to promote the pest management industry and advocate for issues important to us. A key priority for the pest management industry during the 2018 Farm Bill, NPMA continues to push Congress to secure federal preemption. NPMA staff is visiting committees of jurisdiction already to prepare them for your visits during Legislative Day in March. To kick off this lobbying push, NPMA has redesigned our one pager on preemption, available here. Throughout January, NPMA will be releasing our Legislative Day one pagers and will hold a webinar in February to prepare attendees on all of our issues and what expect.
