What makes us unique is we offer both chapter membership and individual membership. We want to be flexible to meet the needs of the individual businesses and we understand those needs vary business to business.

For those that do meet, chapters manage their own meeting schedules and agendas. Our chapters meet monthly, quarterly or only a handful of times per year, whatever schedule is at their own pace. We want quality meetings, with members who want to be there and participate. Not members who are forced to be there whether they like it or not.

Does the California Pool Association lobby for legislative issues, regulations…?

No, we do not. We don’t push our agenda, we support our members in theirs. As stated above we charge extremely modest fees and lobbying efforts are expensive. Many of our members donate time and money. We make efforts to spread important information in our newsletters but we do not solicit money from our members to support lobbying efforts.
