Thank you so much to everyone who attended our April meeting. Pentair was our sponsor and provided a great presentation! Thank you guys so much!

Our first meeting back for the 2019 year had 16 attendees and in April we had 30! We received one new application for membership and welcomed a few new future members. We also received a government relations update from Dallas Thiesen, FSPA government affairs manager from the state office. Thank you so much to the Board of Directors and for all our members’ support! We look forward to growing our meetings and seeing everyone very soon! We have a ton of events coming up so please stay tuned and look for your emails, texts and voicemails!

We look forward to seeing everybody on the second Wednesday of each month! Be sure to get in the Chapter’s communication database. Contact our new chapter coordinator, Diane Michael, at FSPAGulfCoast@FloridaPoolPro.com.
