reached so many goals in one year! In 2023 the Chapter organized a

classes, hosted Inaugural Tubing the Ichetucknee River, and were able to donate
funds to the Margaret M Brown Scholarship Fund of the FSPA, Florida Swims
Foundation, and the Pool Industry Political Action Campaign (PIPAC). Way to go!

Each year the Chapters have the opportunity to recognize
members for outstanding volunteer work and dedication to the swimming pool
industry and FSPA. The FSPA presents the “Director of the Year” to one person
in each of the local Chapter. Each Chapter recipient is determined by a vote of
the local Chapter membership. The award is based on an individual’s leadership
in their Chapter as well as commitment and service to the Chapter. If you would
like to nominate a member for Director of the Year, please submit your
nominations to Sonja by December 10. All awards will be announced at the Awards
Ceremony during the 2024 Everything Under the Sunsm Expo.
