Letter from the President
January 18, 2017
Ladies and Gentlemen of Pi Chi Omega!
I wanted to open this letter with a sincere "Thank You" to all of you for your contributions to the organization. We have had greater participation in the past few years than the previous ten. Like our Pi Chi Omega brothers and sisters before us, we worked together to accomplish our goals. And while we have accomplished a great deal over the past few years, we are just getting started to dig deep into our revitalization.
As we move forward with executing the initiatives from the strategic planning meetings, we will be asking
you to participate in various committees and events. We need your intelligence, creativity and passion for
the industry. We need your desire to make a better tomorrow for our industry. We need you to help
increase the education within our industry.
If you missed it, our updated mission is: To connect and enrich the Urban Pest Management Community.
Our vision is: A collaborative environment in which technical knowledge is shared by engaged members,
elevating the professionalism of the urban pest management community.
We cannot do this without you. Pi Chi Omega is the chain. You are the link in our chain. Each link is
important to the chain. This chain started in 1950, and with your support, Pi Chi Omega will share our
mission and vision for generations to come.
