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.

NESPA: New Depths

Season 2, Episode 1: From Punk to Pools

We kick off season 2 of New Depths with Jim Dorsey of Kayden Manufacturing. Jim's path into the pool industry is one of the most unique we've heard, but somehow it makes complete sense.

In the late '90s, Jim began working with punk rock legends, the Misfits. He started managing merch and slowly took on more responsibilities, and ultimately landed as manager as the band traveled worldwide. Recognizing the gaps in his schedule and earning more, Jim followed a friend into the pool industry, and within six months, they started their own business – All American Pool Service & Supplies.

Recognizing how he needed to learn more, Jim and his team jumped full steam ahead into education with NESPA. And in true Jim fashion, he's taken all that he's learned and is now an instructor, most recently at The Pool & Spa Show.
