In-Person Education Returns with MSPCA’s January 2022 Interstate Pest Management Conference

(Annapolis, MD) — On January 26-27, 2022, in-person learning returns with the Maryland State Pest Control Association's (MSPCA) Interstate Pest Management Conference (IPMC). This premier event, to take place at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum, MD, allows participants to earn the required continuing education credits (CEC) needed for license renewal. Sessions have been submitted to Maryland, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania for CEC approval.

A Turf and Ornamental program will be offered on January 27 for those seeking credits in categories 3A, 3C, and 6. The program features presentations by pest control product manufacturers and will include updates on Maryland and Virginia pesticide regulations.

“Not only does the Interstate Pest Management Conference allow participants the chance to learn and earn continuing education credits, we include time in the schedule for strengthening existing business relationships and forging new ones,” said MSPCA Executive Director Courtney Truelove. “Our members are delighted to gather in person as we'll be meeting for the first time since 2020.”

For more than 40 years, IPMC has focused on increasing knowledge of current science, technology, and applications of urban pest populations and treatment alternatives while also creating a supportive environment to learn from experts, socialize with peers, and meet recertification requirements.
