ASSA and SPASA announce working partnership
Australian Swim Schools Association (ASSA) and the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) have announced an agreement that will see the bodies partner to work closer together for the betterment of their members and the aquatics industry as a whole.
With the Associations support different aspects of the aquatics, spa and swimming pool the partnership aims to collaborate and innovate to provide new services to better the industry.
Welcoming the coming together, SPASA Chief Executive, Lindsay McGrath stated “this is a fantastic opportunity for the two associations to collaborate for the benefit of both membership groups, improving the value that each association provides to their members through mutual effort and future innovation.
“COVID has highlighted the opportunity to form alliances with other like-minded associations to improve the understanding by government and authorities of the importance of the aquatic, recreation and leisure industry.”
Advising that the two Associations see great benefits to their members through shared knowledge and learning, ASSA General Manager, Emily McNeill added “ASSA are excited to confirm this new partnership with SPASA as there are so many ways we can collectively progress the industry and benefit our members.
“This is a great starting point - watch this space.”
ASSA and SPASA both have a seat on the National Aquatic Industry Committee (NAIC) and are committed to practical implementation of not only reducing drowning and improving the safety message.
The natural synergy of the two Associations will open up ways for our respective members to work together, with operational benefits for their members through the vertical integration.
The Australian Swim Schools Association National Conference will be taking place this 24th to 26th August in conjunction with the SPLASH Pool & Spa Expo (25th and 26th August) at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
