About LIPSA:

Chartered in 1978, LIPSA is a robust and vibrant chapter of NESPA/APSP covering Nassau and Suffolk Counties. With over 200 member companies, we are a strong voice with local and regional government and pro-active where zoning, licensing and other legislative issues affect our ability to do business on Long Island.


Likewise, we are a consistent advocate for the highest levels of professionalism within our membership. We worked with officials of both Counties to raise the standard required for pool companies to obtain a Home Improvement license, and we offer frequent classes for industry certification and general education to member and non-members.


We are undertaking a member-based public relations campaign urging licensed pool companies to spread the word to Long Island’s homeowners reminding them of the benefits of choosing a licensed and insured LIPSA member contractor. Since obtaining a license on Long Island requires the business to be nationally certified by APSP, and membership in LIPSA requires members to operate under a strict code of ethics, the consumer should weigh options carefully when choosing a construction or service company.
