Is Committee Service Right for You?
The MSPCA board and membership met last week in Annapolis, MD for the December Annual Meeting. The discussion focused on plans for 2020, challenges facing the association/the pest control industry and how we can meet these challenges. By serving on one of MSPCA's committees, you could help the association tackle these issues.
Serving on an MSPCA committee is a great career move. It establishes your leadership credentials, connects you with other leaders in the pest control industry, and challenges you to do new kinds of work.
