Charlotte Harbor Chapter

Charlotte County – Chapter Staff: Sonja Dickey (941) 952-9293 www.FSPACharlotteHarbor.com/ FSPACharlotteHarbor@FloridaPoolPro.com

Happy 2019!  The Chapter ended a successful year with a smashing fun night out overlooking Punta Gorda atop the 360 rooftop bar at the Wyvern Hotel for a holiday Jingle and Mingle. We couldn’t have asked for a more memorable evening…even in the rain! Over chilled drinks and appetizing food, we opened great, delicious, and some crazy, White Elephant presents. Everyone left with a smile on their face!  

The Chapter would like to introduce to you the 2019 Board: President Nicki Pressley Rice, FWP; Vice President Tim Conroy, HornerXpress; Secretary/Treasurer Virge Jones, SCP; and Directors Ken Moyer, Brenntag; Tara Clune, McGriff Insurance Services; and Mike Kopke, Pebble Tec.  Your 2019 Board of Directors are working on exciting and educational events such as CE classes and a golf tournament in May. Please let us hear from you with any suggestions for speakers or events.

FSPA Legislative Days in Tallahassee is not until March 20-21 this year. Details will be sent out soon. We hope to see you there!

I think about the volunteers who served as presidents, task force […]
