Ellis & Associates (E&A) is enhancing its support for the Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC), a nonprofit organization that promotes the health and safety of people, families and staff members at public swimming facilities, by becoming a Silver sponsor. As a Silver level sponsor, E&A is supporting CMAHC’s mission for healthy and safe swimming through management, updates and promotion of voluntary adoption for CDC’s Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC).
Founded in 1983 as the world’s first dedicated aquatic safety and risk management firm, Ellis & Associates has always been at the forefront of researching, developing and teaching advanced life-saving skills. The company partners with clients from around the world to provide a comprehensive suite of safety and operational solutions for any type of aquatic facility. Ellis & Associates’ innovative and proactive approach elevates aquatic safety for all, driving its unified mission of zero drownings.
“The work done by CMAHC members and staff truly makes a difference in aquatic safety,” says Richard A. Carroll (“RAC”), senior vice president and CCO, E&A. “It is my honor to serve on the CMAHC Board and support the organization through volunteerism, financial contribution, and sharing E&A’s vast expertise informed by more than 800 client aquatic facilities around the world.”
“Ellis & Associates has been a longstanding supporter of CMAHC and, quite notably, in 2020, the firm’s vanGUARD aquatic leadership program was named the first-ever lifeguard supervisor course to receive CMAHC Certification,” says Kristie Riester, executive director, CMAHC. “We are thrilled to have them join our amazing sponsorship line-up – a testament to the importance of the Model Aquatic Health Code and its safety and health standards.”
