FAIRFAX, Va. — Technology and other social changes are constantly altering the way pest management professionals do business. And we are quickly realizing that many traditional strategies that once proved successful no longer generate the same satisfying results.                

In response, Academy 2011, presented by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) July 21-23 at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, will challenge attendees to think beyond conventional wisdom and identify new opportunities that can dramatically impact their company’s bottom-line.
“Busy. Overloaded. Overwhelmed.  It’s amazing how these simple words dominate our conversations, influence decision making, and affect the quality of our lives,” said NPMA Executive Vice President Rob Lederer.  “Whether you are an owner, manager or emerging leader—three days at Academy will provide you with the skills you need to remove these words from your vocabulary.”

Sponsored by Dow AgroSciences, the Academy is a unique opportunity designed to advance the professional and business development of the industry’s emerging leaders in a hands-on, interactive environment.  Building on the theme Get Connected. Get Inspired. Get Results., all educational workshops and team-building exercises will inspire attendees to affect change in both their professional and personal lives.
