Tracks for 2017 will focus on Advanced Chemistry, Advanced Service Concepts, Health Benefits, Facility Management, Model Aquatic Health Code, New Industry Technology, Public Health, and Training for Business Growth. More than 400 experts and specialists convene at the WAHC to develop professionally, network with industry leaders, and help shape the future through aquatics. Yearly, attendees include pool operators, service technicians, aquatic managers, environmental health officials, academia, pool builders, health professionals, aquatic therapists, retailers, and manufacturers from many different countries.

This year’s opening keynote is Mr. Ryan Avery, a rousing motivational speaker. Friday morning’s keynote is Mrs. Amy Posey, she has worked closely with last year’s keynote, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols. Both Mr. Avery and Mrs. Posey will have workshops during the WAHC as well.

In 2017, pre-conference events include the Biennial CMAHC Vote on the Code Conference, the second year of Aquatic Therapy Day, NSPF’s new Advanced Service TechnicianTM Course, and the ever-popular Insider’s Tour of local aquatic facilities. USA Swimming Regional Build a Pool Conference will take place after the WAHC closes.
