The National Pest Management Association (NPMA), a non-profit organization with nearly 5,000 members from around the world, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry's commitment to the protection of public health, food and property. This commitment is reflected both in the continuing education of pest management professionals and the dissemination of timely information to homeowners and businesses.

NPMA exists to positively impact the businesses and livelihoods of those in the pest management community each and every day. Headquartered in Fairfax, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C., the association today is guided by the vision of knowledgeable industry professionals who serve on NPMA's Board of Directors.

The organization's professional staff addresses the technical, governmental, educational, business, and networking needs of its members.
