Over 40 NCPMA members and close to 30 members of the legislature registered to attend. NCPMA members were able to mingle with elected officials and make personal connections, helping to put a face to our industry.

While this is the first reception the organization held at the museum, the association has hosted a legislative meet and greet in Raleigh, N.C., each year. This year’s event was an example of a new and unique way for a state association to reach out and interact with policymakers.

Founded in 1952, the NCPMA provides its members and the general public up-to-date pest management information. Since its inception, the organization has grown to include more than 280 member companies and over 3,000 cardholding members. NCPMA offers continuing education classes and year-round technical and management courses through the Pest Control Technician School and regional workshops.

The Pest Control Technician School is held annually. The 2019 event, in its 69th year, was held in January and attracted nearly 1,000 pest management professionals from across the state for education, training and networking.
