Over the last several months, the WSPMA Board has been to WSDA offices a few times. In those trips, they have had the privilege of meeting Robin Schoen-Nessa. Last week, the WSDA announced that she would transition into a new role as the Assistant Director of the Pesticide Management Division.

pestworld PestWorld 2018

PestWorld 2018 will be held in Baltimore, MD this year. As always, the agenda is packed with great opportunities for owners, managers, office staff and technicians.

The WSPMA knows that the cost of a PestWorld trip can be quite high. We have worked very closely with our friends at Red Lion hotels to offer an amazing rate ($129/nt) to Members attending PestWorld.
If you plan on being in Baltimore for PestWorld, 
Atlantic Past & Glue would like to invite WSPMA and OPCA Members to enjoy some drinks & snacks.
