The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals and the Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C. have announced an international partnership, bringing together two respected organizations committed to the advancement of the pool, spa and hot tub industry.
APSP President and CEO Rich Gottwald and APPAC President Ignacio Barroso signed the historic agreement making a partnership to promote, advance and advocate the interests of the swimming pool, hot tub and spa industry in Mexico.
“We are honored to align with the Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C.,” says President and CEO Rich Gottwald. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to jointly focus on educating, inspiring and engaging a broader audience on issues that impact the industry.”
An important aspect of the partnership will be sharing of best industry practices and leveraging the shared values of both organizations to develop new concepts and activities that expand the impact of each organization.
“Our organizations working together will further the goal of standards harmonization, advancing the industry’s need for uniform codes," says APSP Vice President of Technical and Standards Carvin DiGiovanni. “Through our collaboration with the Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C., we can help advance the international adoption of codes and standards to ensure that pools and spas are built and installed safely. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
“Through our networks we can expand the reach of protecting and educating the aquatic community,” says Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C. President Ignacio Barroso. “At Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C., our passion is to share that view with the world and to inspire people to participate in the industry. We believe we share those values with APSP.”
During APSP’s Annual APSP Awards Reception held on October 31 in Orlando, the partnership was highlighted and representatives from the Asociación de Profesionales de la Piscina A.C. attended.
