NESPA inducted its 2017-2018 board of directors at its annual membership meeting on September 12.

During the meeting, the association thanked previous board president Bob Baron (of Baron Pool Service) for his time, dedication and passion for the industry after his many years of service.

“In the year ahead, we will be building on our strengths as an association by tackling a lot of significant projects like expanding our education offerings, strengthening our relationships with code officials and finding new ways to better the pool and spa industry,” says newly-elected President Ronald Falcioni. “This is an exciting time for NESPA and there is no better group of men and women to work with on these initiatives than our executive committee and board of directors.”
