Dear Pest Control Industry Members,

We are quickly winding down our fiscal/membership year and are looking to 2018-2019.  Elections are just around the corner - if you are interested in serving on our board please contact us at azppo@azcapitolconsulting.com. We have a great bunch of people who are dedicated to making the industry the best it can be, but would also love to see some new faces!

Watch your email inbox for renewal notices in mid-May. Dues are based on the number of licensed associates you have in your company. When you receive your notice, please review to make sure you renew at the correct dues level. 

As we've reported before, we have been watching closely what the Governor/Legislature plan to do with the budget. With the walk-out and march by teachers this week, progress at the legislature has slowed to a crawl until an agreement is reached on teacher pay and the budget. For now, we watch and wait.

As for the Trust Fund, we heard from a ranking member of the legislature this week that the Fund is still safe which is very positive news given all of the noise surrounding the Capitol right now. While we remain optimistic that the Trust Fund is safe, we really can’t say for certain where the Governor/legislature will ultimately land after the dust settles with the protests.
