The FSPA holds an annual legislative days event where members come to Tallahassee to voice our industry concerns to legislators and the agencies that regulate us, and to continue to cultivate relationships with those in government.  FSPA Government Relations Consultant Jennifer Hatfield will set up meetings for FSPA members with both the Department of Health and the Department of Business & Professional Regulation.  Jen will then arrange for members to meet with their elected State House and Senate members from their chapter area.

You must RSVP for this event by emailing Kelsey@FloridaPoolPro.com
