October 1, 2014

FAIRFAX, VA—The North Carolina Pest Management Association (NCPMA) announces the 2014 United We Stand Leadership Conference. Taking place at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C., on Nov. 20-21, this meeting will feature national speakers from around the region and across the country. Focused exclusively on strategies that can be implemented to grow your business in 2015, this conference promises a fresh format and one-of-a-kind chance to interact with leaders in the pest management industry.

“At certain points throughout my career I’ve been able to reflect on occasions that have propelled my business to new heights,” says Scott Canady, president of NCPMA. “I’m confident that the 2014 United We Stand Meeting will be another experience and catalyst that will allow me achieve the next level of greatness.”

According to Donnie Shelton, 2014 UWS Education Chair, “Our industry and our association do a phenomenal job of hosting educational workshops geared toward pest professionals that speak to the latest techniques and methods available to eliminate unwanted pests. However, as a business owner and entrepreneur, there is a definite thirst for enhanced knowledge on approaches to improving my company. This leadership conference and the speakers and panels assembled are exactly what I need to motivate and energize me to reach new heights.”

This meeting is focused on five core business aspects, including business growth tactics, digital marketing to connect with customers, field and recurring sales strategies, profitability in pest management and customer retention and expectations. Each session will include a presentation from an industry thought captain followed by a panel discussion by a group of distinguished PMP faculty members.

“As a business owner/operator, I challenge you to think outside the proverbial box and immerse yourself in practices and methods that have sparked growth for pest management companies nationwide,” says Burns Blackwell, immediate past president of NCPMA. “We are fortunate that our industry is comprised of individuals who are willing to be candid and share their triumphs and tribulations, and I know that the United We Stand meeting will provide you with a distinct and exclusive forum to continue this dialogue of success.”

Event sponsors include BASF Pest Control Solutions, Bayer, Forshaw, Univar and Syngenta. Space is limited; register today at
