Join the Founder's Circle as a Corporate Member

To the Urban Pest Management Corporate Community,

You are cordially invited to become a member of the Corporate Founding Circle of the Urban Entomology Presidential Chair Fund in the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, University of California Riverside, with a gift or multi-year pledge of $50,000.

When you join this circle you will partner with many of your industry colleagues in assuring the continuation of the vitally important research in urban entomology at UCR. The fund will ultimately be used to endow a permanent chair in urban entomology and will carry forward work that has supported the industry for decades.

In addition, you will gain access to an ongoing, two-way communication between your work and that of our scientists. Some other benefits of membership in the Corporate Founding Circle are:
  • Office space within the college facilities for your use when visiting the campus
  • Logo Acknowledgement on the entomology website and linkage to your company website.
  • Private tours and access to UCR scientific collections including: Entomology museum Herbarium Citrus variety collection A prized collection of water resources archives
  • Parking passes for campus visits
  • Invitation-only receptions, research symposia, and other campus events

Other corporate Founding Circle members thus far include Univar USA, Syngenta, and Target, and discussions are underway with all of the major manufacturers and distributors of Pest Management materials. Led by Corky Mizer of Corky’s Pest Control, many operating companies have joined the Circle and new members are joining monthly. The website for UCR Urban Entomology, presently under redesign and development, will ultimately be a central source for information and access for the entire industry.

Please call or email me if you have any questions. We all look forward to working with you!
