Pathway to PCA Events

The SWS Educational Trust presents
The Student Network Event
Sunday, October 15, 2017 at the Grand Sierra Resort, Reno NV

The Student Network Event is an annual forum for college students, educators and career counselors, industry representatives and CAPCA members to invest in and equip the next generation Pest Control Advisers.

Students engage with active PCAs to see and hear about various career options the license provides, receive job-seekers advice directly from hiring industry professionals, and will have the opportunity to network with CAPCA members. Students freshmen to graduating senior will find this a useful and interactive opportunity.
Participation in the Student Network Event is free for students registered for CAPCA’s Annual Conference.

Educators and career counselors are invited to attend the Educators’ Workshop with industry representatives just prior to the Networking Event (10 am – noon). Facilitated conversation will focus on specific areas to better resource and equip students looking to enter the pest management career. Participation in the Educators’ Workshop and Student Network Event is included in the Educator Conference Registration.

Industry representatives are invited and encouraged to participate: collaborate with educators in preparing students for careers, meet with students to network potential hires, and provide your expertise and insight to students considering careers as pest control advisers. Please contact Rachel Taft at rachel@capca.com (916) 928-1625 in the CAPCA office for additional information.

CAPCA Members are also encouraged to participate, giving back and investing future licensees. Chapters with college campus partnerships have the opportunity to sponsor students and host lunch tables, share about the benefits of CAPCA membership and career experiences with students.

Are you a student or educator looking for sponsorship to help attend the Student Network Event?
