Clark Pest Control Educational Conference Speakers
Jeffrey m. Lipman
Jeffrey M. Lipman is a Des Moines, Iowa-based attorney who, among other areas, specializes in bed bug litigation. Last year he was a participant in Clark Pest Control multi-city bed bug tour, where his presentation “Can Ignoring the Bed Bug Problem Put You in Legal Jeopardy?”
wowed audiences with a graphic sequential illustration that spelled out just how quickly and extensively bed bugs can take over two towers of a residential complex, and what kind of issues are raised when their spreading infestation is not addressed. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from University of Arizona, a Juris Doctorate from William Mitchell College of Law, and is a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College.
Bill Pursley joined AIB as a field sanitarian in 1975, later becoming program director. He’s carried out many special assignments that deal with sanitation problems for food companies throughout the U.S. and Canada, and he also has conducted special seminars in other countries for U.S. Wheat Associates. In 2011 he received the George B. Wagner Award for outstanding contributions to mill sanitation and food safety at the International Association of Operative Millers’ 155th annual convention in San Antonio. He holds a Masters Degree in Grain Science from Kansas State University.
As AIB’s Food Defense Specialist, Rod Wheeler assists food processing and manufacturing corporations with development and implementation of food safety and security plans, procedures and guidelines. As former director of the Office of Food Security and Emergency Preparedness with Food Products Association, Wheeler developed a series of
food security and defense programs to support food processing, manufacturing and retail food outlets. Previously, he served as Secretariat of the Food and Agricultural Coordinating Council. He’s made over 300 appearances as a law enforcement and security expert on Fox News Channel, Court TV and MSNBC. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice/ Criminology from Ohio
State University and a Key Executive Masters Degree in Public Administration from American University.
Roger Crawford was born with the kind of physical challenges that would bar almost anyone from succeeding, much less becoming an NCAA Division I athlete and United States Tennis Association-certified champion. Yet he overcame those difficulties to excel in sport at Loyola Marymount University. Crawford later distilled what he learned about maintaining focus to move through adversity and break through limitations, and as “America’s Possibility Coach,” he communicates those strengths and inspires audiences to reach higher with the Possibility Principles: Purpose, Perspective, Precision and Perseverance. His story was featured in the best-selling book Chicken Soup for the Soul, and was portrayed in the Emmy Award-winning NBC-TV movie In a New Light.
We thank each and every one of you for your continued support of Clark Pest Control.
