Different voices can play an important role in accomplishing NPMA’s goals. The Executive Leadership Program was created to find passionate, committed, and engaged individuals from all parts of the country who want to enhance NPMA and the membership experience while connecting with industry leaders.

 

During this program, ELP candidates will participate in a two-year planned curriculum that prepares them for association leadership. NPMA will appoint PMPs from across the country to participate in the Executive Leadership Program. NPMA will fund your participation and travel to Academy and PestWorld, so that you can be part of our board meeting, share your experiences and take advantage of networking and learning activities.
