Regulatory Advocacy –
AZPPO continually works very closely with the Office of Pest Management (OPM) to stay informed about activities and provide AZPPO members with up-to-date information. Currently, three AzPPO members serve on the seven-member OPM Pest Management Advisory Committee (PMAC), that is scheduled to meet monthly at the OPM to analyze, discuss and provide recommendations to the OPM about issues important to pest management professionals. Joining the AzPPO and attending the OPM PMAC meetings are great ways to stay informed and get involved.
Legislative Advocacy –
AZPPO has contracted with the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) to review and monitor every bill introduced into legislation for its potential impact on Arizona’s pest management professionals, in addition to NPMA providing administrative assistance. Any bills requiring action are quickly brought to the attention of the AZPPO Board of Directors and/or the AzPPO Legislative Committee for it to disseminate information to and obtain input from AzPPO membership, and determine a position on each respective issue and then lobby accordingly. Additionally, AZPPO works with State legislators on bills that impact pest management professionals throughout the state.
