The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Academy was established to advance the professionalism and business development skills of the industry’s leaders and emerging leaders in a hands-on, interactive environment. Academy 2016 took place July 20-22 in Orlando, Florida.
As the major sponsor of Academy, Dow AgroSciences joined pest management professionals from across the country at the conference. The three-day event featured team-building exercises, networking, games and general educational sessions. Keynote speakers included Steve Donahue, Jason Dorsey and Jonathan Fanning.
Dow AgroSciences sponsored Jason Dorsey, a favorite from last year’s PestWorld conference. Dorsey, the “Gen Y Guy,” collaborated with Dow AgroSciences to gather industry data that shows how pest control businesses can reach and retain millennials as customers and employees. Spoiler alert: Certified Sentricon Specialists™ can learn more about this multigenerational research early next year. A webinar with Jason Dorsey is scheduled for Feb. 1 and a 2017 Sentricon® Advanced Training module dives into the research findings.
