"Everybody thinks CAPCA just tracks your [CEU] hours, but we do a lot more," says Foell, who sits on the board of the CAPCA Central Valley chapter.

He says many local association board members believe new blood and new ideas are needed.

The first step will be inviting new PCAs to attend the local chapter meetings.

The CAPCA Association is the support mechaniism for the Ca Pest Control Advisor, and is helping to maintatin the professionalism to the ag industry. Pathway is helping to bring young people to the industry by informing them of the job opprotunities available now and in the future. This is a great combination of associations for the betterment of ag here in CA.

My name is Ryan and I am 25. I am a junior in colleges majoring in plant science with an emphasis on crop health. My goal is to graduate and pass the PCA exam so I can get into the workforce. The problem I am having Is getting information. I have no idea how to contact companies that will hire me after I graduate, what companies have the best pay and benefits, or if there are any of these companies who will help me get through school with financial assistance as an incentive to finish school and come to work for them. It's so tough out here right now just to support yourself well enough with a part time Job while you attend school. Also there is a great deal of worry on mg part as to whether or not I will be able to even find a Job once I graduate. Can someone helpe out with some advice? There has got to be some sort of programs that promote this career by helping students survive school so they may get into this fast dwindling career field. My email is any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
