Welcome to our third annual Power 25 issue. This year, we combed the industry to find the most influential people in five key areas: firebrands, volunteers, operators, unsung heroes and crusaders. But no matter who they are or what category they fit into, you’ll also learn what these powerful people are thinking about — what do they think the aquatics industry is doing right and wrong? It’s like having your own personal audience with some of the most powerful (and difficult to reach) people in aquatics. And that’s a power all its own.
