Conference Location & Dates

The California Association of Pest Control Advisers (CAPCA) Annual Conference and Agri-Expo is the major continuing education meeting for CAPCA and for the state’s PCAs. Members generally obtain one-third of their state continuing education requirements at this meeting. Continuing education credits are applied for with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, Arborist Association, California Certified Crop Adviser Program, California Certified Nurseryman’s Program, and the state departments of agriculture in Oregon, Arizona and Nevada.

CAPCA represents a membership of 75% of the nearly 4,000 California EPA licensed pest control advisers (PCAs) who provide pest management consultation for the production of food, fiber and ornamental industries of this state. CAPCA’s mission is to facilitate the success of the licensed pest control adviser. CAPCA’s purpose is to serve as the leader in the evolution of the pest management industry through the communication of reliable information. CAPCA is dedicated to the professional development and enhancement of our members’ education and stewardship, which includes legislative, regulatory, continuing education and public outreach activities.
