NPMA seeks input for Veterans Group


February 3, 2015

FAIRFAX, VA—As PMP first reported Jan. 7, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has formed a Veterans Group. The mission of this group is to actively promote the recruitment of veterans and support those recruitment efforts through various education and training opportunities and provide mentoring and support for veterans currently employed in the industry.

“We have a couple of reasons for launching this initiative,” says NPMA CEO Bob Rosenberg. “We want to honor the exceptional personal sacrifice veterans have made to preserving our freedom and democracy, and provide members with access to this remarkable talent pool.”

An organizational meeting of the Veterans Group will be held during NPMA’s Legislative Day on Monday, March 16 from 7 to 8:30 a.m. in Washington.

“The meeting is open to anybody in the industry and is designed as a brainstorming meeting to imagine how the effort will be organized, identifying several achievable objectives and an action plan to get there,” says Rosenberg. “Additionally, the Legislative Day keynote speaker, General Stanley McChrystal, has agreed to spend some time with our veterans group.”
