At CEPA’s General Assembly, which took place in Dortmund on Feb. 21, the European trade body of the Pest Management industry presented its Association of the Year Award to the UK’s BPCA.

Bertrand Montmoreau, Chairman of CEPA, presenting the award to Simon Forrester, CEO of the BPCA, explained that CEPA’s decision was “in recognition of the BPCA’s contribution to bringing competing but complementary trade bodies closer together”.

BPCA Chief Executive Simon Forrester, in his acceptance speech, said that the CEPA award was “a great and unexpected honour for the British Pest Control Association, as we work alongside very professional sister associations within CEPA. To be singled out is high praise indeed. On a personal note, I am very pleased to see the lobbying and standards-setting activities of CEPA beginning to bear fruit, and I know that the best is yet to come.”
