On April 1, 2011, the SPEC Board of Governors launched a new program called SPEC Ambassadors. For SPEC to reach every single pool service company, builder, subcontractor, manufacturer, distributor and supplier, it’s going to take many people in many different places. Because all companies in the swimming pool and spa industry come under the umbrella of SPEC, we have set a goal to have a SPEC Ambassador in every association chapter in the state of California which includes APSP, IPSSA and UPS.
In past years, SPEC membership has been based on a company’s gross income and we would attempt to raise the dollar amount needed necessary for SPEC to operate. This year, SPEC developed a Strategic Plan which changed that philosophy. We need everyone in the industry to belong to SPEC! Why? Because elected officials respond to numbers…the more voters and companies we can represent, the more they will listen. We’ve reduced our dues so it’s affordable to every industry member. We need everyone! The SPEC Ambassador Program will help us promote, inform and have the means to protect the industry.
QUALIFICATIONS AND RESPONSIBLITIES OF AN AMBASSADOR

In recognition of their service, a SPEC Ambassador will receive a special SPEC name badge to wear at Chapter functions, a colorful wall certificate and listing of their name and company on a special Ambassador’s section of the SPEC’s website.
