The boards of the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) and the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) have hired Association Headquarters (AH), a professional services firm located in Mount Laurel, N.J., and Alexandria, Va., to lead the unification process for the two aquatic organizations.

“This initiative will be extremely positive for the aquatics industry and we are excited to be partnering with the APSP and the NSPF on this unification,” said AH President and CEO Bob Waller, CAE.

AH specializes in helping nonprofit organizations achieve their missions, create value and advance their causes. The process is already underway, and both organizations are working closely to share documentation and meet important milestones on the process timeline.

Rich Garbee, APSP chairman of the board, and G. Bruce Dunn, NSPF chairman of the board, added: “Both APSP and NSPF believe that AH is uniquely qualified to lead this effort. We expect to have a comprehensive plan by the first quarter of 2017 that will show how to maximize both organizations’ potential for the greater good of the industry."
