Outside Event

Join NPMA in Washington, DC, March 10 - 12 for Legislative Day! This annual event is your opportunity to meet with Legislators and Hill Staff to share the vital role pest management plays in protecting public health, food, and property. Present a united front with your peers from across the country to ensure that pesticide preemption is passed at a federal level so only state-wide agencies, and not localities can regulate the sale and use of pesticides. Your efforts will bring forth the change needed to effectively serve your local customers and communities through the safest and most consistent approach to pest management.
