REGIONAL BUILD A POOL CONFERENCES
In an effort to make attendance at the conferences more economical, we have scheduled six regional Build-a-Pool Conferences with a variety of dates and locations to choose from. These one day (or 1 & ½ day) workshop style events are conducted by our Facilities Development staff. To date we estimate these conferences have been an important part of over 65 new facilities being commissioned. They have also played a supporting role in over 100 additional projects. Our professional providers have played a major part in these successes. Attendees receive a 4 gig flash drive with all materials presented plus lots of supporting information.
The format offers information about:
- Programming pools for financial sustainability
- Renovating and upgrading/changing existing pools
- Expanding or adding on to pools
- Designing and building new facilities
