April 2022

April 2022 • Florida Pool Prosm 5 FSPA PRESIDENT On a personal level, I am certain that my business has grown as a result of my involvement with the FSPA. I have made new friends, colleagues and business partners from across the state, offering me a fresh perspective on our trade and how to make it better. I’ve learned to be a better leader by volunteering with the FSPA and its Board of Directors. Simply put, the FSPA has changed my life for the better. GOLDEN. The Florida Swimming Pool Association has always put its professionals first. Whether that’s through providing educational courses, giving out scholarships to children and families of our workers, even throwing the biggest and best party around to celebrate all that we do. We take pride in our people. GOLDEN. This year’s 50th anniversary Everything Under the Sunsm Expo was yet another GOLDEN opportunity to benefit frommembership in our organization. We hosted 4,500 attendees with more than 930 of them learning and earning credits in continuing education classes. More than 200 exhibitors offered innovative products, services, and advice specific to our industry (with tons of free swag and valuable prizes too). The Thursday night awards ceremony was our best one yet thanks to the diligence of our office staff and two dazzling hosts – Nicki Pressley-Rice and Chuck Coone, the dynamic duo. And as usual, the Friday night party at Howl at the Moon was one for the books (nobody can say us pool people don’t know how to party). GOLDEN. Thank you to everyone who attended, exhibited, instructed, volunteered and supported the 50th GOLDEN anniversary #UnderTheSunExpo2022. We couldn't have done it without you. I look forward to continuing a strong 2022 with you, working together to make this industry the best it can be. Thank you and stay GOLDEN.
