Earlier this month, the Professional Women in Pest Management (PWIPM) of Alabama spread awareness and raised funds for the group at the Alabama Pest Control Association (APCA) Winter Conference in Auburn, Ala.

Oldham Chemical Co.’s Butch Cauthen donated a B&G sprayer with pink covers to be raffled. Cauthen also donated booth space for the PWIPM of Alabama at the event.

With support of the APCA membership, the PWIPM of Alabama raised more than $1,200 to help their chapter grow at the event on Feb. 7.

“The Alabama Pest Control Association Winter Conference is a great event for the PWIPM of Alabama to showcase the strength of women in the industry,” said Faye Golden, co-chair of the PWIPM of Alabama. “This is our second year having a booth at the conference; we distribute educational information, resources and upcoming networking opportunities.”

Golden is the governmental affairs manager for Cook’s Pest Control in Decatur, Ala., and serves as the chair of the Diversity Council for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA).

At PestWorld 2019, Golden was awarded the 2018/2019 Committee Chair of the Year.

“Our chapter gives women the resources and tools to not only help with their professional position in their companies but also empower them personally,” Golden said.

The PWIPM is an affiliate group of the NPMA, whose mission is to attract, develop and support women in the pest management industry through educational programs, resources and peer networking.
