The National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA’s) Women of Excellence Award recognizes women who advance the pest management industry.
The international honor is open to women across the pest management industry — service firms, manufacturers, research organizations, etc. — who demonstrate outstanding leadership and have made notable contributions to the development and growth of the profession, their business and other women in the industry.
An independent judges’ panel will select one award recipient based on the following evaluation process:
- Fifty percent of the evaluation process will recognize the nominee’s contributions to the pest management industry.
- Twenty-five percent of the evaluation process will consider notable contributions the nominee has made to her company. Such contributions need not have been made from an executive level position — but rather initiatives and actions that have made a difference within the organization.
- Twenty-five percent of the evaluation process will recognize the nominee’s actions in personal leadership, community involvement and stewardship of future women leaders.
The winner will be recognized at PestWorld 2019, Oct. 15-18 in San Diego, Calif.
2018 marked the 10th year of recognizing women’s contributions to the industry with the Women of Excellence Award. Amy Chapman of Corteva Agriscience was the recipient of the 2018 award.
