AMCA Final Push for Federal Funding – We Need Your Help

From AMCA July 16, 2021

Dear AMCA members, 

We want to thank you for your continued support in promoting enhanced funding for the CDC and specifically the SMASH Act.   We have some good news. Yesterday, the House Appropriations appropriations committee approved the FY22 L-HHS-ED bill and its report. The House included strong language in support of funding as a result of AMCA’s efforts. While direct funding for SMASH is unclear, the language puts us in a position to work with CDC to better prioritize mosquito-borne diseases within the Zoonotic program. Additionally, this is only the House version of the bill and we have an opportunity to impact the Senate baseline bill to encourage definitive funding in addition to strong report language mirroring the House language. 

To this end, we encourage AMCA members send an email to all Senators as soon as possible before July 30th. While the Senate appropriations deadline has passed, they can still markup their appropriations requests because they are still in session until August 6th, and this is what we want to remind them to do.   

If you have already sent letters to your Senators in the last two weeks, that is terrific, and we are asking you to remind them again with the following language and three attachments.  Thank you for your continued support and help in our federal funding efforts.  


Subject: AMCA Support for Public Health Funding

Hi X,

I hope you’re doing well. I’m reaching out on behalf of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) and the (insert local district) to follow up on our FY22 appropriations request and provide a quick update. It’s my understanding that the member deadline to submit requests to the subcommittee has passed, and I really appreciate your prior consideration of including our request in your submissions. That said, if you did send along our request, I would appreciate any help you can give us in weighing in with the subcommittee to include the request in the bill prior to the markup, which I understand has yet to be scheduled. As a reminder, our request is to fund the Strengthening Mosquito Abatement for Safety and Health Programs (SMASH) Act, which authorizes CDC grants to local mosquito control districts for enhanced surveillance and abatement activities. Language directed at implementing the SMASH Act was included in the FY22 House L-HHS-ED report (I’ve attached the language in the event you’re interested). I understand that the House is very different from the Senate in terms of priorities and procedures, but I really appreciate any help you can give us to include similar language in the Senate bill and report, along with dedicated funding to implement SMASH. Any funding for this purpose would have a tremendous positive impact on public health and our operations in the state. I’ve also attached a letter of support to the subcommittee, and an issue brief that highlights our request. Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Call for Papers, Presentations and Posters

The Mosquito and Vector Control Association of California (MVCAC) will hold its 90th Annual Conference February 6-9 2022 at the Sacramento Convention Center and Sheraton Grand hotel. You are invited to submit a paper or poster for presentation at the conference. Presentations should be related to mosquitoes or other vectors, the disease organisms they transmit, or their surveillance and control.
 
Presentations may be about research results, the development and testing of new methods, equipment or products, education, community outreach and the adaptation or development of new technology relating to vector research, surveillance or control, or the administration of a vector control agency.
 
If you are interested in presenting a paper or poster, please complete the attached “Request to Present a Paper” form. An extended abstract is REQUIRED for all presentations and posters. Abstracts may be made available to participants before or at the conference and will appear in the Proceedings and Papers of MVCAC. Presenters may choose to replace their abstract with a paper for publication in the Proceedings. Please see the Guidelines for Contributors for more information.
 
With limited time for presentations, final scheduled oral presentations will be at the discretion of the Program Committee. All Posters will be accepted.
 
Presenters will be notified by November 5, 2021 if they are accepted as a speaker and be given the time allotted for their presentation. Presenters who are not selected for an oral presentation will be invited to present a poster.
 
Posters will be mounted on large poster holders, as has been done in years past. Please bring your poster un-mounted; presenters will attach their posters to the poster board with straight pins, thumbtacks or clips (provided by MVCAC). Posters will be located near the exhibit hall and registration areas. Please plan to stand by your poster during the designated “Poster Session Luncheon” when attendees walk around and ask authors questions. The designated Poster Luncheon will be announced as we are closer to the event. Posters must be set up by Sunday evening, February 6, 2022 so they also can be seen during the opening evening reception. Posters should be taken down between 1:00 and 4:00 PM on Tuesday February 8, 2022.
 
All presenters must register for the conference and are responsible for registration and arranging their own travel.

Support for MVCAC Members Impacted by CA Wildfires

MVCAC Members,

We’re writing to relay the unfortunate news that some of your fellow members have lost their homes as a result of the current destructive wildfires that are ravaging our state. The bad news is, their homes are total losses.  The good news is they and their loved ones are safe.

We want to help any of our members who may be severely impacted by the wildfires in any way we can – whether it be through donations of gift cards (cash gift cards (Visa, AMEX, MC types), Bel Air, Raleys, Safeway, Costco, or Amazon, Kohl’s, Walmart, Target etc), OR cash/credit card donations can be sent directly to MVCAC who will then disperse them to the members directly. Notes of encouragement will also be relayed.

At this time, we are monitoring to see if we have other members who have been adversely affected by any of the California fires and do ask you to let us know if you are aware of others.

If you would like to mail in your donations or notes of encouragement please send to:

MVCAC

Attn: Rachel Hickerson Assistant Executive Director

1 Capitol Mall, Suite 800

Sacramento, CA 95814

We have set up online donations through our member portal. You are also welcome to call Rachel or Evan at the MVCAC Office with donations over the phone: 916-440-0826. In addition, we have a donation form that can be printed and sent to Rachel or Evan.

Thank you to everyone for your support. 

Sincerely,

The MVCAC Staff
