“As we look ahead to the coming year, I hope to focus on expanding and improving our communications within the association as well the industry as a whole,” says newly elected President Irene Insignares. “There is no better team to work with to achieve this goal than the men and women who have stepped up across our region and volunteered their time to serve on our Board this year.”

During the Annual Membership Meeting the association thanked long-time Board members, Chas Bogardus (Budd’s Pool Company) and John Migliaccio (The Pool Place). As they rotate off of the Board after many years of service, they were thanked for their time, dedication and passion for the industry.
