AEPMA continues to work behind the scenes producing Code of Practice documents, due for release in the coming months.
Well, the industry is deep into our season and from all reports this year has been an extremely busy one throughout the country. The media attention pests have received this year is very encouraging, putting a spotlight on the crucial role we play in keeping homes and business healthy and structurally sound. Looking to the future, I only see more media and public awareness and busier seasons for all.
At AEPMA National Office, this time of year generally revolves around housekeeping, planning for the months ahead and speaking to lots of members of the public about pest control.
The planning has been a major focus for Stephen Ware and his team this year, with a lot of tasks set to be delivered this year, including the Codes of Practice (CoP) for Termite Management, Termite Management During New Construction and Training in Pest Management. There are also some projects set to kick off this year such as the CoP for Rodent Management and some exciting training and qualification courses related to high compliance, commercial pest control servicing.
Late last year the national board had a strategic business planning day, which was very fruitful. The day set the focus and agenda the National Office and Board will take for the years to come. The finishing touches are being put on the plan and it will be posted on the website and attached to an upcoming newsletter.
As always, I look forward to reporting our progress in the next issue, on all things happening at AEPMA.
Until next time, I wish you all the best and trust all is going well within your business.
