Community IPM Coordinating Council

Pest control managers and community activists, business owners and researchers, public servants and Extension educators — members of this Council play a critical role in building and maintaining thoughtful and sustained communication between our Community IPM Program and its many constituents.

Whether it’s advising us on strategic planning and critical issues, identifying both our strengths and weaknesses, or helping establish a sound awareness and understanding of what IPM means and how to use it among New Yorkers and beyond, the Council couldn’t matter more to us. Indeed, without them our Community IPM Program could never have become the regional and national leader it is.
