Happy dog days of summer!  Whew – it’s been hot!  The Chapter took part of the summer off.

The Chapter meeting on July 27 had more than 53 people in attendance!  This was a CE credit course on DOT regulations.  David Rivers, R&S Compliance Group, led a fun, interactive course.

The 40th anniversary of the annual FSPA High School Invitational Swimming and Diving Meet is fast approaching!  Volunteers are needed. Please let us know if you are able to attend this event.

Plans are still in the works for an Oktoberfest – watch your emails!

Save the date: November 15 will be the annual Member Appreciation/Table Top event.  We are heading back to Maggiano’s!

IMPORTANT: There are going to be several Director positions opening on the Chapter Board in the coming year.  Debi Garner, our long-time Executive Director/Chapter Coordinator/wearer of many hats, is stepping down after 10 years of serving our Chapter.  A task force will be formed to help find a replacement.  If you are interested in this position, please contact Brian Curts.  Additionally, Treasurer Kim Quintal’s term will be coming to an end.  In accordance with our By-Laws, you must have been on the Board as a Director for at least one year to assume this position.  If you have an interest in serving your Chapter, let Brian Curts or Debi Garner know.  Ballots will be going out in the fall.  Help support your industry; it does not take much time and you will be rewarded many times over by volunteering.

Please submit any and all suggestions to the Board for events and classes you would like to see us offer for next year.  Remember this is your Chapter and your voice counts.

Eva Adcock Best Pools of Brevard The other day a potential customer called me and asked if I have constructed a natural pool. When I told her that I had never heard of it, she asked me to research it and if we were interested, we could “practice” on her. So onto the internet I […]

Al Mendoza CES Chemistry control systems have been in daily use on thousands of Florida pools since the late 1970’s.
