Happy dog days of summer! Hard to believe we are
already through more than half the year!
The Annual Deep Sea Fishing Trip was on June 24! The

Welcome to our newest members: Jag City Pools; Cabana

During the 2022 Legislative Session, SB 222 passed all
legislative policy committees and the State House and State Senate unanimously.
The bill received the final signature from Gov. DeSantis so now CPC and RPC
contractors can hire swimming pool and spa subcontractors regardless of local
or state license status, similar to the “Jim Walters” exemption that home
builders have had for over a decade.
As always, this is your Chapter, make the most of it by
attending meetings and participating in the events. Speak up – if there
are things you want to see us doing, let us know! We are always looking for new
ideas and we would really like to see some new people interested in serving on
the Board of Directors.
