The Independent Pool and Spa Service Association (IPSSA) continues to grow and has created more opportunities for its members and chapters to earn recognition and prizes. IPSSA now offers three awards designed specifically for service professionals that are IPSSA members.
The newest of these awards is called "The Pool Professional of Tomorrow Award" to be awarded to any IPSSA member that demonstrates commitment to the growth and future of the pool service industry through the activities within their chapter and community. Designed specifically for newer members, applicants must be active in the industry for less than 10 years. The winner receives a $500 prize and travel accommodations to the annual Weekend of Inspiration event in 2024.
Additionally, IPSSA has expanded its well-known "Terry Cowles Lifetime Achievement Award." Established in 2006, the award for individuals was established for those with over 10 years of active service in IPSSA and provides a cash award and complimentary tickets to the IPSSA annual banquet event. The new "Chapter of the Year Award" provides a first-, second- and third-place award that includes cash funds for the chapter as well as complimentary tickets and hotel accommodations for IPSSA chapter members to the organization’s Weekend of Inspiration event.
Those interested in applying for these awards, please contact Rose Smoot (email@example.com) for details on the nomination criteria. Submissions must be received by September 1, 2023 to be considered for the awards. Since its inception in 1988, IPSSA was established to promote educational opportunities and provide business support and resources to its members. These awards are part of IPSSA’s continued desire to engage IPSSA members and the criteria reflects the organization’s core values of Community, Education and Support of all IPSSA members.
