Speaking with One Voice

The Northeast Pool & Spa Association is your voice on legislation and regulations impacting our industry. NESPA GRAC monitors legislative action across the region and represents the pool and spa industry when these important actions are being debated.




NESPA's Government Relations Action Committee (GRAC) brings together dedicated member volunteers and lobbyists on behalf of our members to oppose onerous over-regulation and advocate for our industry. We have important relationships with Federal, State and local officials and are in regular contact to share our industry’s perspective on legislation. 

The Government Relations Action Committee consists of representatives from each of our four chapters.  If you have questions about legislation and government regulations contact NESPA at 609-689-9111.

Winterizing Pools & Spas for an Easy Spring Opening

With the Winterizing courses at NESPA and the Chapters now wrapping up, one of the key takeaways offered was a Winterization Vehicle Checklist. Vehicle Checklists are highly customizable to fit the particular company, but what is important is to use a checklist each time you ready a vehicle for the road so that you will have everything you need to efficiently close the pool.
