Every day, members of the United States Congress are bombarded with requests to support or oppose legislation. Individuals, organizations and entire industries are fighting for or against laws impacting their business or personal lives.
In this environment, the interests of the pest management industry can easily be overlooked. We cannot afford to let this happen. There are significant battles emerging, in particular with preemption laws in several states and the revisions to the 2018 Farm Bill. Any changes to existing legislative and regulations have the possibility to significantly impact your pest management business. And we must ensure that lawmakers know us, hear us, and respond to us.
Nothing has more impact on NPMA’s efforts to advocate on behalf of the industry than our members talking with their members of Congress. In fact, the most effective way to bring about change is direct contact with your state representatives.
This March, National Pest Management Association members will climb Capitol Hill in Washington, DC to meet with their members of Congress – providing opportunities to promote the pest management industry and advocate for issues important to us.
Make your plans to attend today.
