PWIPM Local Network Fundraiser - Virtual Silent Auction

PWIPM is hosting a virtual silent auction in-conjunction with PestWorld and the Women's Forum from October 25 - December 2, 2021 to support our local network grants.

PWIPM local networks host events that give every person in the industry an opportunity to connect at the local level. When a local network starts up, it often needs a little funding to host its first event or make promotional materials. This fundraiser is for our Local Networks Grant program. Our goal is to expand the reach of PWIPM into every community.
