Jim Sargent receives the FMC Legislative Day Award from FMC's Bethwyn Todd.

WASHINGTON — Jim Sargent, director of technical support and regulatory compliance, Copesan Services, was recognized with the FMC Legislative Day Award, on Monday.

“Sarge,” as he is well known by in the pest control industry, has brought an important entomology perspective to NPMA and the committees on which he has served.

He’s been a valuable longtime member of NPMA’s Fumigation Committee, which played a leading role in NPMA’s successful effort to push legislation that retained food uses of sulfuryl fluoride. He also gave NPMA important guidance when the association was fighting to retain flexibility for the use of rodenticide products, after EPA had imposed harsh restrictions for where these products could be placed.

Sargent was presented the FMC Legislative Day Award by FMC’s Bethwyn Todd.

“[Sarge] has not only demonstrated an incredible commitment to the pest management industry, but he is equally dedicated to the sciences,” Todd said. “He’s passionate about entomology and he serves as a great role model for the discipline. He’s respected worldwide as a scientist, but he’s never lost his sense of wonder and his thirst for learning. He’s a much-valued resource by pest control operators, technicians, vendors and clients alike.”

The FMC award is presented annually to individuals who have distinguished themselves in the pest management industry through various activities — particularly legislative involvement — and through their contributions to advancing the industry.
