PHOENIX, ARIZ. — The Arizona Pest Professional Organization (AzPPO) and Univar have joined forces to co-sponsor the 1st Annual Arizona Pest Management Conference & Expo, March 28-29 at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Resort in Chandler, Ariz., and March 29-30 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites in Tucson, Ariz.

The two-day conference is being held at two different sites in late March in order to coincide with the state’s continuing education renewal program and to be readily accessible to more attendees, according to Christy Davie, co-chair of the conference. “It is sure to be a great event with over 65 vendors attending and six hours of certification (credit),” she said.

The educational program for the conference includes both a business track for owners and managers and a technical track for service managers and technicians. The Chandler meeting also features a golf tournament, with a portion of the proceeds of the tournament going to support the AzPPO Political Action Fund.

The cost of pre-registering for the conference is $80 for AzPPO members and $95 for non-members. The pre-registration cut-off date is March 7, 2011. After March 7 the cost is $90 for AzPPO members and $105 for non-members.
