Did you attend?
What did you think?
I am curious to know peoples impression ofthe "new and improved" NAC and NAM School, got any thoughts ot share?
Do miss you in Aquatics. I hope you can still network and go to conferences with us.
A group of us have started a new organization called the Association of Aquatic Professionals. A professional Aquatic organization by aquatic professionals. Stay tuned!
Thank you Charles. I can't remember if we have met. I checked out the new website and am excited to see Juliene and Farhad are involved. I will be in touch and keep up on what AOAP is doing. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
Keep me in the loop, I am interested to hear (join) this new org!
Sorry for the very late response to this discussion, just finding my way through this whole site, and now to your group.
Yes, I went to NAC and NAMS 3 in San Diego this past Feb. Comparing it to other NAC/NAMS would be like comparing McDonald's to Tahoe Joes, yes they feed you, but the quality of the food and service don't compare. With the exception of a few good presenters, it was nothing like the quality of previous NAC/NAMS conference. I am very disappointed that NRPA has done away with the Aquatics Branch ability to do their own trainings, and will most likely not be renewing my NRPA membership. Since I am no longer with a Parks and Recreation Municipality, solely an Aquatic Pool Authority (Special District) that was really all that I was using NRPA for anymore, aquatics resources.
I have joined Association of Aquatics Professionals and hope to gain there the quality of information I received in the past from NAC/NAMS.
