Tom Fraser, general manager of the Madison-based Professional Pest Control, and WPCA President, has recently been appointed the Wisconsin State Policy Affairs Representative (SPAR) by the WPCA. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has re-imagined the SPAR program to increase its influence and footprint on state legislative and regulatory bodies throughout the nation through stronger organization, experience, communication and participation.
“As the SPAR I will be coordinating and communicating efforts between the WPCA membership and NPMA on public policy issues that affect the structural pest management industry,” Fraser says.
As the 2016 state legislative and regulatory cycle nears, he asks that all of you sign-up to send pre-drafted letters to federal and statewide decision makers. NPMA provides a grassroots service that makes this process easy by simply clicking a button and filling out your name and address. This is a great opportunity for the pest management industry in Wisconsin to be heard on issues that impact our industry at the federal and state level.

Lastly, Fraser emphasizes that we are in a volatile legislative and regulatory landscape and the need for better organization and communication will greatly increase our ability to affect legislative and regulatory outcomes that favor the structural pest control industry. For these reasons, he asks that you participate in the process with us. Please feel free to contact Fraser directly with ideas, suggestions or to volunteer your time when important issues arise. “I look forward to representing our interests here in Wisconsin,” he adds.
