We are thrilled to introduce our newest member benefit, FSPAConnect! This will be your go-to place to stay in the loop with all things related to the Florida Swimming Pool Association. It is an exclusive members-only networking tool designed to help you connect with other association members.
You can ask advice, share expertise, connect with other members and even share large files without cluttering your inbox.
You already have a profile set up and are automatically subscribed to the FSPA Open Forum. Now it’s time to login, update your profile and start making connections!
**You already have an account profile set up for you because you are the point of contact for your membership. If you have other employees in your company that you would like to grant access to this community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the unique email address and name of the employee. THIS MUST BE A UNIQUE EMAIL ADDRESS. There is no limit to how many employees you can add.**
