About Us

 

 

In the late 1950s, members of the swimming pool industry in the northeast section of the U.S. banded together to form NESPA to address their collective needs. The organization was incorporated in 1958 and received its 501-C-6 status (Trade Association) from the IRS at that time. From the days of its founding, the organization has been continuously engaged in promoting and protecting its members and educating them and raising their levels of competency in all phases of business activity.

The Northeast Spa & Pool Association exists to advance the commercial interests of our members in the pool and spa industry.  The Association provides education, networking and business support to meet the current and future needs of our membership and the industry as a whole.  We also serve as a resource for product and safety information for consumers.

For over forty years, NESPA has been affiliated with the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP).   NESPA consist of four chapters – CONSPA (covering Connecticut), Long Island, Metro NY-NJ and PennJersey. Members include service companies, builders/installers, distributors, retail stores, manufacturer's agents, manufacturers, independent pool and spa service companies and sub-contractors.

NESPA is the owner and producer of The Pool & Spa Show (formerly The Atlantic City Pool & Spa Show), one of the swimming pool industry's largest events.  The Show draws an estimated 11,000 people to Atlantic City for 4 days of educational, business and social activities each year.

Our other “trademark” activity is the Professional Training Institute. PTI offers the industry's broadest, most comprehensive training programs designed to upgrade professional skills in building, service, management and retail operations.  View more information about our education programs here.

Northeast Spa & Pool Association is your best resource! NESPA is your connection to networking, marketing tools, benefits, strategies and products that will help ensure the success of your business and your future opportunities.
