Membership Guidelines

All applications for membership to NESPA are also applications to PHTA and the local PHTA/NESPA chapter based on the geographical location of the member.  *Applicants must be within NESPA's 4 Chapter regions to apply for membership 

Within NESPA there are 4 chapters: Connecticut Spa and Pool Association (CONSPA); Metro New York and New Jersey Chapter encompassing all of New York City, Rockland and West Chester Counties, the Eastern half of New York State and all of Northern New Jersey; Long Island Pool and Spa Association (LIPSA); and Penn Jersey Chapter encompassing all of Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. 

All applications for membership will be presented to the local PHTA/NESPA Chapter for approval. Chapters may have additional criteria for membership approval. 

Non-members and applicants awaiting chapter approval of membership may not use the NESPA or PHTA logos. 

Providing false information or failing to provide required information on this application is grounds for denial of membership. 

Full payment of annual dues must accompany this application for membership. Checks should be made payable to Northeast Spa and Pool Association (NESPA). Checks will be deposited to prevent theft or loss. Acceptance of applicants check does not constitute acceptance of membership. 

The membership dues year begins when final approval from Chapter is confirmed.

Continued use of the logo violates federal and state law and may result in prosecution. 

Contributions or gifts to NESPA are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for income tax purposes.
