History

How The Coalition Was Formed

The creation of the Global Pest Management Coalition came naturally after the successes of the Global Summit conferences organized in France (2015), New York (2017), and the creation of World Pest Day in Beijing (2017). Those three events underlined the potential impact of a global message and a coordinated worldwide action supported by the professionalism of our industry.

Announcing the Coalition

May 30, 2017 (Fairfax, Va.) – The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently met with pest management associations from around the world and formed the “Global Pest Management Coalition”. The mission is to provide a unified voice across the globe promoting the value of pest management in ensuring the protection of health, home, food and businesses.

“The Zika outbreak was a game changer for the pest management industry, as it marked the first public health crisis the industry has faced impacting countries from around the world – and the first that emerged in the information age” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “This coalition was formed to ensure that there is a sharing of information and consistency among the members in messaging to the public and elevating professionalism.”

Stumpf went on to say, “during the Coalition’s think tank session, it became clear that we all share some common goals particularly as it relates to protecting public health and property.”
