SPASA WA members vote to merge with SPASA Australia

November 11th, 2022

In an overwhelmingly successful ballot, SPASA WA members voted on Tuesday November 8 to amalgamate into SPASA Australia.

The organisations are now moving towards an amalgamated and cohesive national association for the Australian swimming pool and spa industry.

SPASA CEO Lindsay McGrath said it was a truly historic moment that has been under a collaborative and strategic process for some time.

“It establishes a unified industry representation going forward for the first time across the Australian continent,” he says.

“Creating a platform where all industry members from every state, territory and our diverse professional sectors will work together to see our collective interests protected, promoted and growing into the future.”

SPASA WA EO Sadie Stevenson believes that the amalgamation marks an exciting new chapter for the industry.

“WA has a long history of being at the forefront of innovation and we look forward to making a valuable contribution to the national association,” she says.

“While navigating the amalgamation process, our focus now turns to ensuring that WA members receive the many benefits that come with national membership, while maintaining the uniquely West Australian culture we all value.

“To have led SPASA WA to this point has been a privilege, and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve as part of the larger team.”

Stevenson and her team will join forces with SPASA Australia to create a unified group across multiple different roles to help continue to serve SPASA member and work together towards the mission to protect, promote and grow the swimming pool and spa industry.
