At NPMA Legislative Day, Copesan Services, Inc. was pleased to present its $8,750 contribution to two key charitable organizations providing scholarship funds and research support to the pest management industry.
The Copesan network of local service providers has been raising funds for nineteen years in support of Pi Chi Omega and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Foundation for research through our annual charity raffle.
Sponsored by Syngenta, the 2020 fundraising raffle was held in conjunction with the Copesan/Terminix Commercial National Accounts Conference (formerly the Copesan Conference), February 18-20, 2020, in San Diego, CA. This year’s event was well-attended by members of the Copesan Partner network, pest management suppliers, and National Accounts staff attendees who raised $4,375 in just a few short days. “We’re honored to be able to give back to the important research and education initiatives these organizations support thanks to the continued generosity of the many Copesan, Terminix and industry attendees together last month,” said Aric Schroeder, Vice President of National Accounts for Copesan and Terminix Commercial.
As is tradition, Copesan matched the amount raised in San Diego for a total donation of $8,750.
Pi Chi Omega’s Executive Director, Andrea Coron thanked the individual contributors and Copesan for the matching funds and noted that “their generosity ensures that young talent and fresh minds at universities across the nation will continue to receive the support needed to keep science at the forefront of urban and structural pest management.”
The NPMA Pest Management Foundation has been providing grants for the research, development and refinement of pest management tools and techniques for over 30 years.
