PCOC-KarenBest joke heard at a District meeting….
Did you hear about the two bed bugs who met in the mattress?
They go married in the spring!
See what you are missing by not attending the meetings….

The last two months have been a flurry of termite swarmers! I missed last months’ blug traveling to Southern California where I had the chance to attend district meetings in San Diego and Orange County. In between meetings, I was able to stop by potential members. I then ventured to NPMA’s Pest World in Seattle. Little did I know that there were so many ways to get rid of pesty little and BIG bugs. I was able to attend the Professional Women in Pest Management Council and it is an amazing group of women. I look forward to starting a council in California! Our first meeting will be in at the Board of Directors meeting in Palm Springs See you there!

After my adventure in Seattle (yummy and amazing food) I traveled not only to Redding to attend the Shasta District where I was able to reach out again to non-members but also to the Vintage District where I lost the chance to pull the blue ball out of the bag. I was able to attend a couple of vendor events. Target had a training and Geoteh celebrated the grand opening of their new location.

By the end of 2016 I am proud to say that I will have traveled to all but 3 districts (look out January here I come) Just a few reminders to current members, any assistance with non- members is always appreciated. If you have any ideas for more benefits, please contact me. Registration for our 2017 Expo has been sent and I look forward to visiting my old stomping ground at Disneyland. Who knows I might throw out a princess waive.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and safe travels!
