The two Technician of the Year awards are given each year to technicians in the pest management phase and wood-destroying insects phase.
Technicians of the Year are chosen based on the applicant’s demonstration of leadership among peers, excellent customer relations, knowledge of his/her job, superior job performance and the ability to successfully handle problems on the job. All applicants must be members of NCPMA, have at least two years of experience in either the pest management or wood-destroying insects phase and must be nominated by a person in a leadership role in his or her company.
The winners of the Technician of the Year Awards received a $250 gift card, a plaque and one free Pest Control Technician’s school registration.
The North Carolina Chapter of the Professional Women in Pest Management (NCPWIPM), a NCPMA committee, began awarding the Administrative Professional of the Year Award annually in 2018 to the administrative professional who best demonstrates customer service both internally and externally and a commitment to the company’s purpose. Each nominee must be a current, full-time administrative support staff member and must have worked in his/her current position for at least two years.
