Happy New Year, members!
The new Chapter Board is becoming acclimated to their responsibilities and look forward to a fun and eventful 2018.  This year we will hold Board meetings on the second Tuesday of the even months, and Board and Chapter meetings on the second Tuesday of the odd months.  You will be sent a reminder prior to each meeting of the date, time and location.

Please note we have a new Chapter email address and phone number for our Executive Director Marcia Scott:
fspane@outlook.com and 904-458-7683.
We also have a new Facebook page:  FSPA Northeast Chapter, please like us and add your comments and pics!

We completed our Employee Training event on January 17 and look forward to another successful training later this year.  We would like to thank Monica Stamper Hall, Orenda Technologies; Jeff Clarkson, Vak Pak, and Dave Pruette, David Pruette Electric Services, Inc., for their time and knowledge.

A CPR class is being planned for the Chapter and Board Meeting on March 13.  There will be a cost of $17 for the CPR class and the standard cost for dinner.

We will again hold our annual, and much anticipated, Charity Golf Tournament at the Julington Creek Golf Club in the month of April.  More info to come but start thinking about those winning teams!
Our Board and Chapter meeting in May we will include an exciting CE course on succession planning.

The Chapter will continue our support and involvement with the Safe Kids Northeast Chapter in 2018.  Our former executive director Debi Garner, Pools by John Garner, will continue to represent us with her valuable time and knowledge of the swimming pool industry.  Our support continues to help fight child drownings.  Safe Kids Day will be held in the month of May and we will keep you posted of the date and venue.

We plan to send a survey to all members with 10 short questions.  Please take the time to fill this out and send back with your comments and concerns so we may better serve you in 2018.
Thank you for your membership and hope you all have a blessed and prosperous 2018!
