APSP Councils

Members of APSP Councils number among your association’s key decision-makers and facilitators of knowledge. Representing the various segments of the pool, spa, and hot tub industry, APSP Councils identify and serve member needs within their industry segments, and provide leadership opportunities and a forum for networking and exchanging ideas. From the Hot Tub Council to the Manufacturers’ Agents Council, APSP member expertise is critical to each Council’s ability to recommend and develop programs, services, and products that are tailored to individual industry segments. Each council, which meets at least once a year, is represented on the APSP Board of Directors by one of its members.

The APSP Builders Council enhances the business, image and welfare of APSP’s builder members collectively by doing together those things, which individuals could not effectively achieve independently. For more information email Carvin DiGiovanni or call 703.647.2544.
