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.

Volunteer Spotlight

This month we’d like to send our sincere thanks to the judges of the Paulette Pitrak Above & Beyond Volunteer Recognition Award.  This award was created in 2017 to honor the member of Paulette as well as to place a spotlight on a member who has demonstrated exceptional dedication to our association through their volunteer service during the previous calendar year.  

Our judges this year were Ray Rescildo (CONSPA Chapter; 2017 Recipient of the Above & Beyond Award), Barbara Rizzi (LIPSA Chapter) and Pete Lucey (Penn Jersey Chapter).    Each judge reviewed the nominations for this year’s award and considered each nominee against the criteria established for this important award.

We greatly appreciate the time and efforts Ray, Barbara and Pete put into making sure this new award continues to be a reminder of the great contributions Paulette made to our industry and our association.   

Join us at the NESPA Awards Celebration at The Pool & Spa Show to see who was selected as the 2018 Paulette Pitrak Above & Beyond Awardee.  The celebration will take place on Wednesday, January 30th at the Haven Night Club (7pm – 9pm). This is a ticketed event. Purchase your ticket here.

As a special thank you to NESPA volunteers, we will be highlighting individuals or groups of volunteers that have donated their time to help better our organization and industry.  Know of a volunteer deserving of recognition?  Let us know at info@nespapool.org.  Interested in volunteering for NESPA?  There is a volunteer position for every interest.  Volunteer projects take place throughout the year and can be short term, short time commitments or more in-depth projects.
