Each year, NPMA works diligently to identify and recruit members to serve on our association’s committees. In an effort to foster fresh ideas and allow all NPMA members to share their expertise, we are calling on you to nominate yourself or an industry colleague to serve on an NPMA committee. Your involvement and leadership will help us chart a successful future for the association and the industry. Please take a moment to click on the links below to view the list of NPMA committees and complete an application.
 
Please note: The majority of NPMA committees meet face-to-face at least twice per year in conjunction with Legislative Day in Washington, D.C. and PestWorld (2017 will be held in Baltimore, MD). Committee Conference calls are scheduled as needed but don’t typically exceed once per month. Additionally, the incoming NPMA President makes final appointments of individuals to all NPMA committees.
