In May of 2004, four professional pest control operators met to discuss the development of a new organization focused on the enhancement of professionalism in the pest control industry in Arizona. The discussion focused on purpose, ethics, education, organization, name, benefits, membership criteria and fees, as well as joint membership with NPMA. With an idea of the needs for the industry, the group set out to create AzPPO. Now AzPPO has over 60 members and is growing strong.
