Thanks to the support of NEPMA membership, the PWIPM of New England raised more than $1,000. Filipe Ferreira from Pelsis/B&G donated a pink B&G sprayer to raffle off.

“The NEPMA Fall Training Seminar was a great event for the PWIPM of New England to showcase the strength of women in the industry, especially in our local region,” says Marillian Buono-Missiti, president of Buono Pest Control in Belmont, Mass., and chair of the PWIPM of New England. “Our chapter gives them the resources and tools to not only help with their professional position in their companies but also empower them for opportunities they might not even think about. We had a table to distribute educational information, networking sessions and other beneficial resources.”

PWIPM of New England, in partnership with NEPMA and Forshaw, also promoted its upcoming Leadership Summit, a program for NEPMA members who are motivated to improve their leadership and teamwork skills. The program is titled “Women Who Lead: How to Influence, Empower & Inspire” and will be led by Marinn Bengel, Forshaw director of HR.

“It is extremely important to give the PWIPM of New England this seminar as many of us are faced with everyday demands and challenges in the workplace that sometimes filter into family needs and personal time,” says Buono-Missiti. “This is a valuable resource that will help to meet these issues through education, networking, the overall comradeship of the group and the development of successful businesswomen.”

The Leadership Summit will be held Nov. 20 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza in Woburn, Mass. To attend, email Buono-Missiti at Marillian@BuonoPestControl.com.
