NPMA Launches Two New Membership Programs at PestWorld 2017

In response to requests from its membership, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) launched two new programs at PestWorld 2017 in Baltimore, Md. Last week – a comprehensive online Resource Center and a Health Insurance Exchange.

During his remarks in PestWorld’s Opening General Session on October 24, NPMA President Bryan Cooksey spoke about the new online Resource Center. He said, “The Resource Center is a one-stop-shop with a vast array of up-to-the-minute technical and business management resources to help our members’ employees succeed. The NPMA staff has curated our online resources and created an easy-to-navigate section within our web site to help PMPs easily find the information they need.”

A key component of the Resource Center is the brand new online learning module, where employees of NPMA member companies can earn state-required recertification credits and their managers can manage training records.

On Thursday, October 25, NPMA President-Elect Dennis Jenkins announced NPMA’s new Health Insurance Exchange Program. “NPMA’s goal is to provide small and mid-sized employers with cost effective benefit solutions,” said Jenkins.

The NPMA Health Insurance Exchange offers multiple options for NPMA members, including a self-funded medical plan for companies with 2 or more employees, a health reimbursement arrangement that allows members to use tax-advantaged account dollars to pay for individual healthcare premiums, consumer directed spending accounts, such as health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts, and guaranteed issue programs.
