SPASA AGM Vote

logo_newsNEWS RELEASE 17 March 2016
SPASA AGM Vote Confirms long term vision
Historical Resolution supported at SPASA AGM diverse experience
 
The Members at the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of NSW & ACT (SPASA) Annual General Meeting held on the 16th March 2016 voted in favour of the following Resolution:

"Based on appropriate due diligence as determined by the board, the membership approves the board’s authority to continue collaborating with SPASA Australia and the other SPASA states towards a unified (one) SPASA national model. The purpose is to improve member services and industry value by positioning SPASA Australia as a unified, single entity national body supporting and delivering improved benefit to all members Australia wide.

“Discussions over the last few years regarding forming a single-entity association have been driven by the belief that the common mission for SPASA and the State bodies would be better advanced by ideally having one entity operating across Australia,” said SPASA President, Robert Guthrie.

“The growing demand for a stronger, unified and collective voice has driven SPASA NSW & ACT to challenge how we are conducting ourselves now and how we may grow in the future under a single entity national body,” added Guthrie.

“This is a historical step,” says Spiros Dassakis, CEO of SPASA NSW & ACT. “The swimming pool and spa industry is a significant economic contributor for the Australian economy and the importance of a single entity national peak body delivering stronger services and advocacy for operators of swimming pool and spa related businesses is of paramount importance.”

Members will start to see movement in the next few months as discussions progress further, processes are formalised and due diligence is undertaken,” adds Dassakis.

Further information or clarification regarding the approved resolution should be directed to the SPASA NSW & ACT office.
