SPASA Australia has formally struck up a collaborative affiliation with the US-based Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP), the world’s largest and oldest association representing the pool and spa industry.

“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to pool resources with such an established body as the APSP. It’s an exciting time to be looking beyond our borders to collaborate with like-minded associations, to share skills and provide benefits and efficiencies to our members,” said SPASA Australia CEO Lindsay McGrath.

“Distance is not a significant barrier when we have similar strategic goals: to promote our industries, which create happier and healthier people by swimming in more pools more often.”

The partnership will involve the sharing of knowledge and ideas relating to education, industry best practice, advocacy and research, benefiting both organisations and their members

“We are excited to partner with SPASA on a number of initiatives. With shared common goals to professionalise and protect the pool and hot tub industry, we are embarking on a new path toward collaboration that can strengthen both memberships and provide consistency for companies doing business in Australia, the US and the world,” said Rich Gottwald, president and CEO of APSP.
