NPMA adds Kurtz to Legislative Day

Legislative Day 2019 LOGO: NPMA

LOGO: NPMA

On Friday, Feb. 15, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) announced that Howard Kurtz will be a keynote speaker for its Legislative Day event later this month. Kurtz is a political analyst, author and the host of Media Buzz for Fox News. He replaces KT McFarland, who had to withdraw from the program for a family emergency.

Kurtz will join Legislative Day attendees for the breakfast and keynote presentation sponsored by Control Solutions Inc. (CSI) on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 8 a.m.

In Kurtz’s no-holds-barred presentation, attendees will gain a sharper understanding of how today’s media environment shapes opinions and, ultimately, policies that will determine the future of their organizations. His career has also included serving as Washington bureau chief of Newsweek, host of the CNN program Reliable Sources, and New York bureau chief for The Washington Post.

“We are very happy to have Howard join us for Legislative Day this year,” says Ty Ferraro, CSI marketing director. “We are longtime supporters of the structural pest management industry and through our sponsorship of the Tuesday morning breakfast at Legislative Day each year, we strive to offer attendees informative and enjoyable speakers. It’s unfortunate that KT couldn’t join us this year, but we wish her the best and know that Howard is a gifted presenter that will be remembered by all those in attendance.

NPMA’s annual Legislative Day event is continuing in its 32nd year, amid a new Congress and counting down to the 2020 election cycle.

“This year, we are anticipating a great Legislative Day program, as nearly 400 PMPs gather in Washington, D.C. to advocate for issues that are important to the pest management industry,” says NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf, CMP, CAE. “We appreciate CSI for their ongoing support of this event in addition to all our conference sponsors.”

The event allows the pest management industry to speak with a unified voice on Capitol Hill to build and enhance relationships with parties on both sides of the aisle.

PMP‘s inaugural 1933 issue: Exterminators Log

inaugural issue of Exterminators Log 1933 cover

Click to read a full PDF.

Here’s an excerpt from the inaugural 1933 issue of the Exterminators Log, Pest Management Professional’s original name.

“At last we have it. When you first received a letter calling your attention to a magazine for exterminators and fumigators about to be placed in circulation, you no doubt thought what it would be like. Your curiosity was aroused and other thoughts flitted through your mind. With an anxious heart you were waiting to obtain and look the first issue over. So now you have it and are no doubt please with it’s contents.

“We hope you will enjoy every article and be so enthused that you will support it by sending information, suggestions, and personal items, that it will be of interest to your fellowmen. Up to the present time the exterminating and fumigating concerns have been without a magazine of their own. As these concerns have been increasing throughout the land many have felt the need of a magazine devoted entirely to the fumigators and exterminators, which should prove interesting and valuable.

“They realize that through the magazine they could keep in touch with their fellowmen. New information would be obtainable, new methods would be discussed through its pages, which would be valuable to the business. So the purpose and object of the Exterminators Log is to be devoted entirely to exterminators, fumigators and concerns that manufacture insecticides for the public.”
