Pest Management Associations from Across the Globe Form New Coalition

NPMA recently joined 21 pest management associations from around the world to form the Global Pest Management Coalition.

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently met with pest management associations from around the world and formed the “Global Pest Management Coalition”. The mission is to provide a unified voice across the globe promoting the value of pest management in ensuring the protection of health, home, food and businesses.

“The Zika outbreak was a game changer for the pest management industry, as it marked the first public health crisis the industry has faced impacting countries from around the world – and the first that emerged in the information age” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “This coalition was formed to ensure that there is a sharing of information and consistency among the members in messaging to the public and elevating professionalism.”

Stumpf went on to say, “during the Coalition’s think tank session, it became clear that we all share some common goals particularly as it relates to protecting public health and property.”

The National Pest Management Association, a non-profit organization with more than 6,000 members, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry’s commitment to the protection of public health, food and property, reflected both in the continuing education of the pest control professional and the dissemination of timely information to homeowners and businesses.
