National Pest Management Association to Host P3 Summit

Strategic visioning Initiative focuses on guiding and shaping the industry's future 

P3FAIRFAX, Va. - March 7, 2016 - The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) announced it will embark upon a facilitated strategic planning process involving nearly 100 industry professionals, including Board members from NPMA, the Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA) and QualityPro, as well as the chairs of its 23 other committees, to understand the collective needs of its members, identify significant industry challenges, refine the association's vision and set its strategic direction.

The P3 Summit, an invitation-only interactive industry planning session, is made possible by the generous support of BASF and Forshaw and will take place May 18-20 at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida.

"With the juxtaposition of an outgoing CEO and Board of Directors and an incoming CEO and Board of Directors, the National Pest Management Association currently faces an extraordinarily unique opportunity to build on its historic successes, respond to its future challenges, take advantage of future opportunities and remain flexible and nimble enough to adapt to changes," said incoming CEO Dominique Stumpf.

Facilitated by Jim Meffert with Tecker International, the P3 Summit will culminate with an envisioned future for the pest management industry.

"The outcomes from this session are extraordinarily important for the industry's future," said NPMA's outgoing CEO Bob Rosenberg. "And NPMA, PPMA and QualityPro have committed to building upon the discussions that will take place."
