Benefits of Membership

This is for full-service pest control companies actively engaged in providing consumer services, especially when you have more than one technician or Certified Operator needing Continuing Education Credits. 

The categories for membership are based upon the number of licensed technicians and certified operators you have or will have during the coming year. This has nothing to do with support staff or total staff numbers:

A        1 to 2    licensed technicians or certified operators      $150

B        3 to 5    licensed technicians or certified operators      $185

C        6 to 10  licensed technicians or certified operators      $305           

D       11 to 20 licensed technicians or certified operators      $420

E        21 to 30 licensed technicians or certified operators     $550                               

F        30 - up   licensed technicians or certified operators     $670 

This number is essential. In our new system, you will be asked to name each technician and operator who is licensed and is working under you. You can only have the number of techs and operators attending classes you have paid for, or you will have to pay the difference and go to the next membership level.  Further membership is also restricted by location. If you have ten licensed technicians and operators in your Norcross location, you will get a level C or D membership for the Norcross location. If you have five licensed technicians and operators in your Snellville location, you will get a level B or C membership for the Snellville location. You must have both memberships to allow your technicians and operators to take advantage of free continuing education units. 

Remember that our free Fourth Tuesday Classes are available to your technicians and certified operators at a savings of $10 per credit hour. This means you are getting free; for each technician and certified operator, you have membership for 11 HPC and 11 WDO hours for free instead of paying the $220 it would have cost them or you. What a value and what a great gift to your employees. This, of course, doesn't consider the savings you get in membership at all education events or the opportunity for free Region CEU classes. '

The higher the membership level, the more votes you get to help direct GPCA's future. It also permits you and your team to hold office at GPCA and participate at member rates to all functions.

Active/Conditional Members also get membership rates for all educational materials and forms and advertising materials offered in the GPCA Shop. 

Please note that only properly licensed companies can be members of GPCA. If a company is unlicensed and uninsured, their membership will be denied, and a fee of $25 will be assessed against the refund of monies paid toward membership.

Additionally, any member whose dues are unpaid by August 1st will be suspended and may only be reinstated by paying the current year’s dues, plus 10% of the dues as a late fee.  Members suspended for at least one year can be reinstated by paying the current year’s dues, plus a $25.00 reinstatement fee.

Restriction to Companies One Year

If a company has been in business for less than one (1) year, it may apply for Conditional Membership. If approved, membership gives the privileges of membership to the association with the following limitations:

1. Reference to membership in advertising is not permitted 

2. The official seal of the Association shall not be displayed nor its slogan employed

3. Shall not be entitled to vote or hold elective offices

Once the business has been active for more than a year, membership becomes a full Active Membership with all privileges stated above.
