The inaugural Industry Safety Summit, originally planned for June 25-26 of this year, has been postponed to May 6-7, 2021 due to the potential impact of COVID-19. As the threat of Coronavirus continues to loom, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and QualityPro have decided to take this precaution in order to protect the health of our participants.
“NPMA’s mission statement and the tagline of this meeting is ‘Our Mission is Your Protection’, and during this time of uncertainty this statement couldn’t be more fitting,” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “Our highest priority is the health of our members, and we look forward to hosting a fantastic meeting next year alongside QualityPro in a safer environment.”
The Industry Safety Summit, to be held at the Renaissance Orlando at Seaworld in Florida, is a workshop-style meeting that will bring safety experts together with companies of all sizes to discuss safety as it relates to the pest management industry. Topics covered will include safe driving, pesticide safety, and tips on implementing a safety program.
