LIWA Aquatics appoints new President

LIWA Aquatics appoints new President
September 6, 2019

The Leisure Institute of WA Aquatics (LIWA Aquatics) has appointed a new President, Nick Wilkinson.

Wilkinson, who has been Manager Leisure Services at the City of Canning since April 2008, took on the Presidency from Jeff Fondacaro, who stepped down after 12 years in the role at the recent LIWA Aquatic 50th Annual State Conference and Trade Exhibition.

Wilkinson has been involved in the industry for two decades, having been qualified as a swimming pool manager by the WA Department of Health in 1999.

LIWA Aquatics’ staging of its anniversary event has been described as “exceeding the event organisers' expectations” with the two-day conference attracting a record number of over 250 delegates, 39 trade exhibitors and 215 attendees to the Annual State Dinner.
