See What You Missed! Legislative Day 2014 Recap


We at FMC are so proud to be the 27-year title sponsor of NPMA’s Legislative Day, the industry’s most important lobbying and networking event.

In 2014, more than 300 pest management professionals took time out of their busy schedules to travel to Washington for the two-day event. Their purpose? To thank their Congressmen and women for important legislative wins in 2013 and educate them on issues affecting the pest management industry.

Take a look at what you missed, below. We hope to see you next year!
