Note from our Region 3 President Julie Yant 


  I hope that you had a great Christmas with your loved ones.  We enjoyed an exciting one this year with our boys ages 4 and 6.  The wonder and innocence of these children is refreshing and I'm grateful to experience life with them.
I am extremely excited about our speakers in January, particularly Paige Manuel.  Paige has an exuberant and contagious spirit.  I hope that you will all make plans to be at our meeting to hear what she has to share about maximizing our potential in life.  I'm excited that Jim Orr from Univar will be speaking as well but I'm a tad bit more excited to share Paige with you - sorry Jim! ;-)
I wish you all many blessings in 2012 and look forward to seeing you soon!
Julie

November Meeting

Hi all!
We had a great time at Pest World 2011 in New Orleans.  It was our first visit to New Orleans and we really enjoyed the historical parts of the city.  As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed the speakers, classes and networking at the conference.  We were also proud to be there to celebrate NPMA President and fellow Tennessean from Sevierville, Ray Johnson of Johnson Pest Control. We had two phenomenal general sessions speakers.  On Thursday we heard from Lt. Gen. Russell L. Honore (U.S. Army, Ret.). He discussed New Orleans post-Katrina and how we can prepare and be leaders in our family and community in the face of the next disaster. On Friday, we heard an amazing, emotional presentation  from FDNY Chief Picciotto about his experience on 9/11. He was the last highest ranking fireman to be rescued as he was on the 6th floor of the North Tower when it collapsed. These men set some great leadership examples and hearing their stories definitely reminds us to count our blessings and put our daily struggles in perspective.
I look forward to seeing you all in November.  Remember to check out Region 3 TPCA and now TPCA pages on Facebook.  Also, remember to invite a friend in the industry and share with them how they can benefit from our association.
Julie

September Meeting


Newsletter Sept. 2011

Hello all!

 I’d like to thank you for the opportunity to give back to this group over the next year that has given us so much. The relationships that we’ve formed and the expertise that we’ve learned as being members of this association have been invaluable.   I look forward to continue to grow in Region 3.

 

As some of you may know, my life long goal was not to be a PMP however now having been one for ten years, I wouldn’t change it for the world!  I intended to use my psychology degree to go to law school however it has come in quite handy in dealing with customers, employees and running a business with my husband.

 

I enjoy all aspects of being a PMP however I’m most passionate about the management side of the business.  I also enjoy educating consumers about the pest management industry and showing to all people that we are professionals in what we do.  To that end, my goal is to incorporate technical and business management speakers into most, if not all, of our bi-monthly meetings.   I currently have speakers scheduled through January and I’m quite excited to hear them present to our association in the coming months.

 

I would be greatly encouraged to have feedback from you regarding any topics that you are interested in.  Andy and I have been involved on the local, state and national level of our association and I think there is something to be learned from each group.   I hope to share some things I’ve learned along the way and to learn some new things myself in the coming year.

 

I look forward to our meeting in July and hope to see you there!

 

Julie
