NPMA Hosts Successful Legislative Day
Nearly 400 individuals attended the annual NPMA Legislative Day event this week, designed to advocate for issues important to the pest management industry. The event began with riveting keynote speakers including Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman, Governor Howard Dean, Michael Gerson, David Wasserman and culminated with a special presentation by Pennsylvania Senator, Bob Casey and Wisconsin Senator, Ron Johnson.
The industry made almost 200 visits to the Hill, educating members on pesticide preemption and the Illicit Cash Act. The pest management industry is committed to building bipartisan relationships in Congress and positioning NPMA as the leading voice on any legislation that impacts protecting public health and property from pests.
There were two awards presented during the event, the FMC Legislative Day Award was presented to Suzanne Graham of Massey Services, Inc. based in Orlando, FL and Marie Horner of Arrow Exterminators or McLeansville, NC was named the 2019 NPMA PestVets Veteran of the Year!
We thank all those that spent time with us in Washington, D.C. last week and look forward to building on the great work accomplished by the many Senate and House visits that were made on behalf of the industry.
