FAIRFAX, Va. - In its continuing efforts to provide financial support for industry research and pay homage to Norman Goldenberg's enduring industry legacy, the National Pest Management Association's (NPMA) Pest Management Foundation announced the creation of the Norman Goldenberg Research Fund. Members of the steering committee, which first met at NPMA's Legislative Day have pledged more than $500,000 in contributions; already the industry's most successful research initiative (A list of pre-launch pledges is appended).
 
Created in recognition of Norman Goldenberg's 53 years of service to the pest management industry, during which he worked tirelessly to promote the best interests of pest professionals, the fund will allow the Foundation to support research that will propel the industry's advancement in the 21st century.  "I can't think of a more fitting way to recognize and honor Norman's half-century of contributions to the industry than the creation of a research fund that will provide leadership for the next half century," said NPMA CEO Bob Rosenberg.
 
"I am moved and honored by this outpouring of support and generosity and am proud to be associated with the pest management industry," stated Goldenberg, expressing his gratitude to the industry, association and generous contributors.
