The Chapter would like to welcome South Shore Pools, Inc. as our newest Chapter member. We look forward to seeing you at Chapter meetings, events and CE classes. Welcome!

Thank you to Superior Pool Products of Tampa and Bill Gifford for sponsoring the Chapter meeting with speakers from DBPR. We had a full house on May 15 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites. Tim McGrath provided information on issues of unlicensed activity and what resources are available to the pool industry. We hope everyone who attended learned how to work together to combat this issue.

The scholarship application for the 2018-2019 FSPA Scholarship Program is ready! Dependents of owners or company employees (of 2+ years) are welcome to download the application from the FSPA website. All materials are due in the office by June 29. Spread the word to any company staff with graduating high schoolers or college students.
