Dear PSEP Educators and Stakeholders,
I am pleased to announce that the National Pesticide Applicator Certification and Safety Education Workshop will be held August 20 – 21, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. NPSEC is pleased to cooperate with ASPCRO to hold this National Workshop on the front end of their Annual Meeting, which runs until August 24, 2018
This will provide PSEP educators, SLA’s, EPA and other federal agencies, and other stakeholders an opportunity to join in the ASPCRO educational program immediately following the National Workshop, making for an exciting week of education, action and networking.
I want to apologize for the confusion when we announced the tentative date for the PACT meeting for the prior week in August. A number of factors caused us to go back to the drawing board to reschedule and re-configure this meeting. Thanks to the support of the ASPCRO leadership and board of directors, and with input from a number of other stakeholders and collaborators, NPSEC is very excited and pleased to be able to provide the coordination for this new National Pesticide Applicator Certification and Safety Education Workshop. I want to stress the word coordination, because NPSEC will be working with a diverse planning committee to lead collaboration efforts on important topics and issues at this National Workshop. We hope this will be a new model for PACT reinvented.
Please hold this date - meeting agenda, hotel, registration and other details will be available shortly. Plan to arrive no later than Sunday, August 19. As always, don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments you may have.
Our bi-annual Northeast Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training Conference will be held in Burlington, Vermont in November 2018. The Planning Committee requests your input on finalizing the date, topics, and speakers. Please respond to a brief survey on the Conference at:
The deadline for your response to the survey is two weeks, Friday April 20, 2018.
Our goal is to design a robust agenda of topics and speakers that provides you with cutting edge tools and information to protect human health and the environment. We look forward to hearing from you!
