Hello and welcome to the new website for the Mississippi Vegetation Management Association!!!! I am excited to tell you about some changes that the MVMA Board has been making and this website is just one example. I hope you find the information from this website informative and helpful. Be sure to check out our “Sponsors” tab and give these companies your consideration when purchasing goods and services. Their generous support helps make this association possible.
Another big change this year is that the MVMA Board of Directors has decided to hold this year’s MVMA Conference on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! The conference will be at Biloxi’s Golden Nugget Casino, November 15-16. I’ve been hearing lots of positive comments about having the Conference on the coast and am looking forward to a great event. Our lineup of presenters for this year is top notch, including a speaker who will be sharing information detailing what we can learn about wind speed and direction from a Military Sniper!! Just like last year, registration can be done online through the EventBrite link. Payments can be made via credit card, either through the EventBrite link, or at the registration table at the conference.
Please make plans to attend the conference. It’s a great chance to learn about new products, changes in regulations, and the different challenges and opportunities in our industry. You can receive credit towards pesticide recertification, as well as testing for ROW and General Standards and there are CEU’s available for various disciplines. It’s also a great time to catch up with old friends from around Mississippi and the Southeast, and to make new contacts from our industry as well.
I look forward to seeing you in November!
President, Mississippi Vegetation Management Association
