    Know Your Audience: Strategies for Discussing Pest Management

    Public pressure regarding pesticide use has increased to the extent that many athletic field managers are now prohibited from using pesticides all together. Many professionals feel comfortable talking about the merits of pesticide use with colleagues but fall short when discussing the topic with those outside the green industry. Learn effective ways to confidently communicate the benefits of pesticide use with your facility’s decision-makers, stakeholders, and the general public.

    This dinner meeting will serve as NESTMA's Annual Meeting. Election results and plans for the coming year will be announced. You don't want to miss this important meeting.
