GPCA Represents at the Country's Capitol

The Georgia Pest Control Association delivered a command performance at the NPMA 2024 Legislative Day Conference and Hill Visits this week! Advocacy for our industry is one of the most important benefits for members.  It protects all our interests no matter how big or small the company.  Thank you to all our members who attended the events and a special thank you to the individuals who represented Georgia on The Hill!  
During the three-day event from March 9th to March 11th GPCA Members participated in NPMA's Legislative Day program which included Policy updates, issue training, celebrity speakers and council meetings.
