Bartlett W. Eldredge Award

About the Award: The Bartlett W. Eldredge Award is NEPMA’s highest award. It recognizes an individual who has made a long-term commitment to the betterment of the pest control industry in New England. Candidates for this award should exemplify strong service to the industry, a commitment to community service, and an overall acknowledgment by his/her peers within the industry.

Nominations are due annually by November 1st. Nominate a deserving candidate today!
You may nominate more than one person, but please submit a separate survey for each. Contact nepma@pestworld.org with any questions.
The recipient of this award will be well known to many and each year many deserving candidates are received. The Board of Directors looks at the nominations and selects one recipient. Unlike the other NEPMA awards, this is not a double-blind process.

The winner will receive an eagle award and industry recognition.

The Bart Eldridge Award is presented at the Annual Dinner in December.
