As part of its mission, the NPMA’s Leadership Development Group presents the NPMA Gives Award to recognize NPMA member companies that have demonstrated leadership through their dedication and contribution to the good of the community.
Such contributions are demonstrated through carrying out and/or participating in community service projects. These projects may be industry related, such as complimentary pest control for at-risk environments, or non-industry related, such as walk/runs, raising funds for the community or blood drives.
EnviroPest won the 2018 award for donating more than $20,000 annually to local organizations, providing bed bug heat treatments to families who couldn’t afford them, and instating an Annual Serve Day when the company closes and takes staff off-site to volunteer at a local non-profit. (Click here to see PMP’s coverage on the Loveland, Colo.-based firm’s 2018 Annual Serve Day.)
This year’s winning company will be recognized at the NPMA’s Academy 2019 in Phoenix, Ariz.
The deadline for submission is June 30, 2019. Qualifying entries must demonstrate a company’s consistent record of service over a minimum of a three-year period. View judging criteria and submit your application here.
The mission of the Leadership Development Group, an affiliate group of the NPMA, is to upgrade the professionalism of the pest management industry by promoting access and increased involvement in NPMA; identify, motivate and develop its emerging leaders; provide a networking opportunity; teach skills that are applicable to pest control businesses, personal development, the community and NPMA; and facilitate information exchange between generations of managers and owners.
