2022-2023 MMCA Board and Committees
Here we are in the middle of another mosquito season with all the surprises that show up each season. Changing climate brings new circumstances to our mosquito season. The unknowns of mosquito borne disease are never ending concerns. The world of mosquito control is ever changing and we need to be able to change with the circumstances presented.
The role of MMCA is to help members with questions, to find expertise and provide a network of people that can support members in their everyday roles. Communication and connection of members, getting past pandemic challenges of isolation will help MMCA fulfill its role. The committees are moving forward, the finances look good. The hope is that MMCA will be able to assist where and when the members need that assistance.
MMCA is working towards a closer working relationship with Michigan Pest Management Association. The plan is to have speakers attend the meeting of the associations and begin to build beneficial connections. We feel this would benefit both associations working together on common issues. At the end of the day, we are working towards public health. A quick visit to the MPMA website (http://www.mipma.org/) demonstrates how the two associations are similar in their vision and mission.
I would like to thank all board and committee members for working through the tasks that keep this organization moving forward. I would like to extend a thank you to those individuals that stepped up and volunteered to take on leadership roles in the organization. On behalf of MMCA, we appreciate your efforts.
