The Model Aquatic Health Code is coming. Set for initial launch this year, the MAHC is an effort to create a single, uniform set of aquatic standards to be used as a blueprint for states and localities to update their pool codes.
Spearheaded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with initial funding by the National Swimming Pool Foundation, this effort would not have happened without an army of volunteers from across the industry, including operators, academics, manufacturers and health officials. Steering committee members are overseeing the effort and those on technical committees are charged with drafting the actual documents.
The MAHC is sure to have a powerful impact on the industry, and on the following pages we’ve highlighted 25 MAHC “power players,” mainly technical committee chairs or steering committee members. But regardless of their roles in the MAHC, they are all accomplished and knowledgeable individuals leading the industry to new horizons.
