April 27, 2022


The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) announced the recipients of its inaugural NPMA Impact Awards for Women in Pest Management.

The Impact Awards honor and celebrate exceptional women at all levels within the pest management industry in any role, including management, technical/service, sales or office staff.

Recipients will be honored at NPMA’s Women’s Forum from May 3-5 in Nashville, Tenn.

“NPMA was thrilled to receive such an overwhelming response to our call for nominations. What an exceptional class of women. It’s truly an honor to have them among our colleagues in pest management and we look forward to celebrating each of them.” said Dominique Stumpf, CAE, CMP, CEO of the NPMA.

Women working in any function at a pest control company were eligible for consideration. This includes technical/service, sales, management or office staff and nominations were open to individuals from both NPMA member companies, as well as nonmembers. NPMA encouraged nominations from anyone who has a professional relationship with a potential nominee as well as nominations of individuals who have received state local, or other industry-specific recognition. Each nomination was considered based on the merits of information included in the submissions.
