A Letter From PNWPMC
"This year we have an exciting announcement and challenge with respect to the fundraiser, and that is the formation of the Laurel Hansen Scholarship Fund. We have a goal of raising at least $25,000 at the banquet to establish an Endowment for the next generation of pest control experts in Laurel’s honor. As a longtime member of our Conference Association and one of the world’s premier experts on Carpenter Ants, Laurel Hansen has been leading the charge on ant abatement and best practices for identifying and controlling one of the region’s most annoying and destructive pests. As you plan to reconnect with professional colleagues at the Pacific Northwest Pest Management Conference in Hood River, I hope and trust you’ll consider making a special and meaningful contribution to the Laurel Hansen Scholarship Fund. As an added incentive, one of our members has generously put out a challenge to help us reach that goal, and that is a DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR MATCH, up to $15,000 total! To clarify, when you give $1,000, an additional $1,000 will go to the scholarship fund… so let’s do this! "
