MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Stanton E. Cope, PhD, manager of Technical Services for Terminix, has been elected vice president of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) for 2014-2015. He takes office at the AMCA Annual Meeting Feb. 5, 2014, in Seattle.

AMCA is a nonprofit organization that provides leadership, information and education leading to the enhancement of public health and quality of life through the suppression of mosquitoes. Cope will serve as vice president during his first year, and in successive years will serve as president-elect, president and past president, with varying duties.

As vice president, Cope’s primary duty is the chair of the program committee of the AMCA National Meeting for 2015 in New Orleans. Cope is only the second industry representative to serve in the vice president role since AMCA’s founding in 1935.

“I’m honored to be elected by my peers to Vice President, the first stop over the next four years of various leadership roles in the Association,” Cope said. “Working together with our membership and mosquito control organizations, my background in entomology will add another perspective in our effort to address the many challenges that face the industry today.”

Cope graduated from Swarthmore College with a degree in biology.  He went on to obtain a Masters in Entomology from the University of Delaware and a PhD in Public Health from the University of California, Los Angeles. He served as a medical entomologist for more than 23 years in the United States Navy, retiring with the rank of Captain. Cope joined Terminix, the world’s largest pest control provider, in September 2012.

Cope is a recognized expert on the history of medical entomology and yellow fever. From 2008-2012, he served as a regional director for AMCA and was instrumental in launching AMCA’s Young Professionals group, designed to recruit a younger and more diverse membership interested in entomology, mosquito control and pest management.

Terminix is also a Bronze Level Sponsor of the AMCA, a donation that is applied exclusively to the student competition fund.
