PCOC - Fall 2015 - (Page 9)
PCOC Can Count on
By Martyn B. Hopper
Executive Vice President
The single most important reason that PCOC is such a strong industry trade association is because of its members. Having been involved
in other associations and talking with other association executives in
Sacramento, I continue to be very impressed with the level of activism
that we have within the pest control industry.
It starts with the 19 vibrant and energetic
PCOC districts. The meetings are professionally run and well attended. Companies, who
compete with one another during the day,
come together for fellowship and networking
in the evening. This activity is tremendously
significant because it builds a base for affecting public policy at the federal, state and
local levels through, lobbying for industry
issues, protecting the pest control industry.
Your trade association is thus comprised of a
large number of separate entities throughout
the state which have a tremendous impact in
sustaining our industry.
Following on from the local district
level is the opportunity to participate on
a statewide basis in one of PCOC's committees. These are listed in the PCOC
Membership Directory. Here we have groups

of individuals lending their expertise to
issues that affect our industry and the continued professionalism that it represents. Our
legislative agenda, our media outreach and
membership growth are a few examples of
this important effort.
And then there is the opportunity to
attend one of PCOC's events and continuing
education meetings. Whether it is Pest Ed,
Leg Day or our Expo, these are all great
opportunities for you to support the industry and become more knowledgeable about
issues that affect your bottom line. The
photos in this magazine are from our hugely
successful Expo 2015 that just occurred in
Monterey. This was the largest convention
we have had!
I look forward to a very productive and
active fall on the activism front!
