Pest control professionals spend a lot of time thinking about image. The way we view ourselves, versus how we're perceived by the public and the media, are not quite the same. Recently the National Pest Control Association launched a national marketing campaign to promote the valuable role of our profession. Yet the most potent image-builder for a company or organization isn't through advertising- but from the credibility and client trust earned by employees each day "in the trenches."
The 1998 University of Kentucky Pest Control Short Course will energize your people with new information and ideas, and give you a more credible, professional image. Look over the enclosed program and we think you'll agree. In fact, if you attend and are not satisfied with the learning experience, we'll refund your registration fee. To reinforce this years' theme, each participant will also receive a complimentary, entomology- quality hand lens.
Join us in Lexington on October 6-8 for the 1998 Pest Control Short Course - no-nonsense training for A Sharper Image.

LOCATION AND LODGING-
The 1998 conference will be headquartered at the Hyatt Regency located at 400 West Vine Street in downtown Lexington. The Tuesday afternoon workshops, industry exhibits and social functions will take place at this location. The remainder of the conference will be held on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Opening ceremonies on Wednesday morning will be held in the Seay Auditorium in the Agricultural Science Center North. The Hyatt Regency is holding a block of rooms for Short Course participants until September 15. Attendees are urged to make their reservations early as space is limited. Reservations can be made by calling:
Bus transportation from the Hyatt Regency to the University of Kentucky will be provided for the convenience of Short Course participants. Buses will leave each morning beginning at 7:30 A.M.
Please plan to ride the bus as parking is virtually impossible to find on campus. Riding the bus to and from the Short Course will reduce the "hassle" of finding parking spaces, avoid parking tickets and will keep your vehicle from being towed away by the campus police.
The Kentucky Division of Pesticides will be awarding continuing certification credit for Categories 7, 8 and 10. Continuing certification credit for this program has also been requested from Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. If you work in another state and would like your attendance to count towards that state's certification, we will gladly supply you with a copy of the program to submit to your state's authorities for evaluation.
