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.

Unlicensed Contractors

Suspect a contractor is working without the necessary license? Let NESPA Know!   This year again, NESPA will provide an anonymous why for our members to report suspected companies that are operating without the required licenses needed throughout our region. 


  1. Visit NESPA's Unlicensed Contractor Webpage here
  2. Answer a few simple questions either via email or a PDF form  
  3. Email the info to unlicensed-contractor@nespapool.org

All complaints submitted to NESPA will be kept anonymous.  If you’d like to get updates on the status of your complaint, just let us know!

Unlicensed Contractors hurt the pool & spa industry because they

  • They lack accountability. 
  • They have a high rate of involvement in construction scams.  
  • They are unfair competition offering artificially, low rates. 
  • They are unlikely to pull necessary permits.
  • They are likely to work outside the code of standards.
  • They undermine and damage the reputation of Licensed Contractors.
