Lindon, Utah – April 17, 2019
The Utah Pest Management Association (UPMA) celebrated its one-year anniversary since being founded in March, 2018. Since that time, the UPMA has hosted two conferences; an inaugural conference in the fall of 2018, and most recently a spring conference in Lindon, Utah.
These conferences drew nearly 300 attendees and exhibitors from across the state of Utah, all dedicated to the protection of public health, food and property. Attendees were offered the opportunity to earn CEUs (continuing education units) in Utah and neighboring states, through professionally-led education and management sessions. These sessions included a variety of topics from accounting practices for managers and owners to proper pest identification for technicians.
Andrew Richardson, owner of one of Utah’s largest pest control companies, Edge, and President of UPMA, commented on what sets the association apart from other organizations. “The programming provided by UPMA is really next-level. PCOs, business owners, managers… they can’t get the kind of quality education that UPMA offers anywhere else. UPMA conferences are unmatched by the community experience – you take away so much more than just CEUs.”
