Visitors to apsp.org and nspf.org will find a new logo at the header of these webpages. The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance officially launched April 1, unifying the National Swimming Pool Foundation and the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals.
The new organization operates with PHTA as the umbrella, leading industry-wide advocacy, alliances and promotions. Trade and foundation activities are conducted separately for procedural and legal purposes, under the banners of The Pool & Hot Tub Professionals Association and The Pool & Hot Tub Foundation, respectively. All three groups are governed by a single board of directors to ensure sustained unity of mission and vision.
“Our industry has continued to evolve and grow,” says Larry Caniglia, interim CEO of PHTA. “With the combined resources of the trade association and foundation, PHTA is poised to maximize our investments and talents for the greater good. Members will benefit from the full array of education, training, certification, advocacy, promotion, research, grantmaking and support services previously delivered by APSP and NSPF separately. But now, we have combined infrastructures, networks, affiliations and resources to provide the greatest value and impact.”
