APEC is the only state advocacy association representing the interests of the pool industry in Texas. Since 2005, APEC works in conjunction with industry trade associations such as the Independent Pool and Spa Service Association (IPSSA) and the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) to formulate positions that benefit both the industry as well as the consumer.
Government regulation, while well intended, can place an unreasonable burden on pool and spa business- often raising industry costs and increasing liability without successfully resolving the issues or protecting the consumer. With a presence at the state Capitol, APEC works with lawmakers, offering the benefit of industry knowledge and experience. We retain two lobbyists Jake Posey and Steve Koebele to execute this endeavor. Their advocacy efforts help us achieve our defining goal- to protect the welfare and bottom line of our members while maintaining an uncompromised commitment to industry safety and excellence.
