Kurtz is a political analyst, author and host of the Fox News television program Media Buzz. He replaces KT McFarland, who withdrew from the Legislative Day program due to a family emergency.
Kurtz will join Legislative Day attendees on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 8 a.m. for the breakfast and keynote presentation sponsored by Control Solutions Inc. (CSI).
“We are very happy to have Howard join us for Legislative Day this year,” says Ty Ferraro, CSI marketing director. “We are longtime supporters of the structural pest management industry and through our sponsorship of the Tuesday morning breakfast at Legislative Day each year, we strive to offer attendees informative and enjoyable speakers. It’s unfortunate that KT couldn’t join us this year, but we wish her the best and know that Howard is a gifted presenter that will be remembered by all those in attendance.”
Kurtz will give a no-holds-barred presentation that will allow attendees to gain a sharper understanding of how today’s media environment shapes opinions and, ultimately, policies that will determine the future of their organizations. Previously, he served as Washington bureau chief of Newsweek, host of the CNN program Reliable Sources, and New York bureau chief for The Washington Post.
Legislative Day is in its 32nd year, as a new Congress and counting down to the 2020 election cycle.
“This year, we are anticipating a great Legislative Day program, as nearly 400 PMPs gather in Washington, D.C., to advocate for issues that are important to the pest management industry,” says NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf, CMP, CAE. “We appreciate CSI for their ongoing support of this event in addition to all our conference sponsors.”
The event allows those in the pest management industry to speak with a unified voice on Capitol Hill to build and enhance relationships with representatives from all political parties.
