My name is Kristin Dodd, and I am honored to be serving as the president of the North Carolina Pest Management Association (NCPMA) for 2010-2011.
On Aug. 5, members of the North Carolina Pest Management Association (NCPMA) gathered in Kiawah Island, S.C. to kick off the 2010 General Membership meeting and the Mid-Atlantic Conference. This meeting always kicks off a new year for our association with the swearing in of our new slate of officers.
This year we have an excellent board of directors to lead our association, many of whom have served on our board in past years.
We want you to meet our board of directors and will be including more information about each board member in our newsletters and right here on our Web site. To kick this off, let me share a little about myself.
I’m proud to be the fourth generation of my family to work in pest management. Like many pest management professionals, I grew up in this industry by spending my summers working in the office of my family business and serving as a technician in the field. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and now live in my hometown of Charlotte where I work full-time in my family’s business, Carolina Pest Management.
Now, I am honored to have been elected to serve as the first woman to represent NCPMA as president and the industry in NC. This is an excellent industry, and more and more women are getting involved in pest management every year. I think it is very exciting to be able to be a part of this transition.
We are looking forward to an excellent year and encourage our members to get involved. We will use this blog site, our Facebook page and our Twitter feed to communicate with you directly and frequently. I encourage you to sign up and stay informed about your association. I also encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions throughout the year.
