As we navigate through these unknown times, the Chapter Board has decided to play it safe. Following CDC guidelines, this year we canceled our Annual Golf Tournament in April and our Legislator Mix and Mingle in May. To stay up to date on how COVID-19 is affecting your business, please visit our COVID-19 page on the FSPA website https://industry.floridapoolpro.com. FSPA staff has been working around the clock to keep up-to-date, pool industry hot topics available for our members. Heard about the car decal letting others know that you are an essential business?
