2017 - 2018 President Bill Stanuszek
Midland County Mosquito Control

 

April, 2017

Erik FosterI look forward to the opportunity to again serve the Michigan Mosquito Control Association membership. Our membership represents a variety of public health professionals focused on controlling mosquitoes and the diseases they vector. The MMCA Board and I look forward to continuing to best serve our membership with quality training opportunities and meetings that promote effective and accepted mosquito control. I value our active membership, meeting attendees, industry partners, and those represented on the Board and our various committees. The MMCA will remain active in representing our members regarding all that may impact mosquito control.

The year started out with another successful MMCA Annual Conference held in Port Huron. It was well attended and the talks and presenters were varied from company owners; academics; students; public health professionals; district staff; and private applicators. Thank you to Tami Seago and Chris Novak for putting this meeting together and all the volunteers and members that executed the program. We look forward to another successful conference in 2018 in Lansing; I know Charlie Dinsmore already has begun putting together another quality product.

Issues and developments we are pursuing:

• Zika vector surveillance with additional local health departments beginning surveillance for Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti.
• Michigan’s Pollinator Policy as a “best management practices” document.
• Legislative relief from NPDES permitting; better qualify and quantify impact on community mosquito control
• Educate EPA on current application methods, control products, and application rates, as to better inform them about mosquito control uses prior to impactful changes to labels and product availability.
• AMCA Washington Day financial support for a member to attend this worthwhile event, where our concerns can be effectively communicated to those who represent us. I would like to thank Dr. Carl Doud for again representing us this May.
• Keep the dialogue open for the responsible treatment of State and Federal lands.
• Promotion of research and education of all that is mosquito related through gracious financial support from vendors and members for scholarships and research.
I look forward to serving you as MMCA President and the future opportunities that lie ahead.
