Happy New Year!  We thank all of our members who attended the Broward Chapter Holiday Dinner in December.  We had a wonderful evening and welcomed the new 2018 Board of Directors.

The Florida Swimming Pool Design, Construction, and Compliance Course, will be held January 8 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Tree Tops Park, 3900 SW 100th Ave., Davie.  This class is a collaboration between FSPA, BOAF and DBPR.  Design professionals, contractors, plans examiners and inspectors will learn the science behind applicable FBC requirements for public and private swimming pools, spas, interactive water features and water slides.  Please register online at www.boaf.net.

The annual FSPA Legislative Days gathering in Tallahassee is January 16-17.  FSPA members voice industry concerns to legislators and regulators.  This event allows members of the association to cultivate relationships with those in government, meeting with their elected State House and Senate members from their local areas.  For more information please visit

The 2018 Board of Directors is looking forward to a combined year of social and educational events for the Broward membership. This will include Top Golf, an annual tabletop in July, the return of the fishing mission this summer, and continuing with an end of year holiday party.

We will also host several educational meetings, including a basecrete training class, alternative resolution class, Dept. of Health updates, business practices and a manufacturer equipment meeting.  We look forward to another successful year for the FSPA Broward Chapter.  If you are interested in hosting a Chapter meeting or event please contact Michelle@FloridaPoolPro.com or at (941)952-9293.
