The GA PestVets – 3/16 Veteran Support Group (3/16-VSG) was established this year in 2020. It falls under the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA) PestVet umbrella. NPMA has ambitions to establish veteran committees at the state levels to amplify their efforts and reach.
Mission & Namesake
GA PestVets is the first of its kind. The namesake of the 3/16-VSG is a tip of the hat to the Georgia Pest Control Association’s (GPCA) legacy. Connie Rogers is the third to serve as Executive Director for GPCA, hence the “3”. She is also a founding committee member of the 3/16-VSG. The “16” honors the 16 original members when GPCA was incorporated in 1950.
As a Veteran Support Group, our mission is to make Pest Management an industry of choice for veterans in Georgia. We want to be recognized as the best industry for veterans to work in and as an industry that supports and contributes to veterans.
Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO)
The GA PestVets is committed to giving back to veterans who gave so much during their lives. The Veterans Empowerment Organization (https://veohero.org/) is a rehabilitation campus for homeless veterans in downtown Atlanta.
Donations will buy food to stock their new dining facility. The VEO houses upwards of 200 veterans at a time who require 3 meals a day. They rely on private donations to maintain their operations and prepare meals.
