16th Annual TPSA Conference
February 9-11, 2016, in Albuquerque, NM

WELCOME TO ALBUQUERQUE!
Welcome to Albuquerque and we hope you enjoy the 16th Annual Conference for The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance. TPSA consists of exceptional volunteers who make all this happen year after year and we want to thank everyone who has contributed to putting this program together. In addition, TPSA would not be able to host this conference without the assistance of all our sponsors. Please take time to visit with each of them and thank them for helping to make this possible.

There are two separate tracks which should allow everyone to find something of interest.  Each track has exceptional topics and speakers so you won’t go wrong exploring other opportunities outside your area of expertise. Thank you for attending.

Mike Kamrath
TPSA President
Bob Magee
Conference Chair
