UP TO AND FOLLOWING HIS RETIREMENT, Ross Alcock will continue to support the new ISPE General Secretary who is about to be announced.

After an illustrious career spanning an impressive 35 years, Ross Alcock, General Secretary of the Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers (ISPE), is stepping down for well-deserved retirement. Throughout his time with ISPE, Ross has been a stalwart figure. His commitment to the institute has been evident in every aspect of his work.

From overseeing the day-to-day operations to nurturing the growth of the Institute, Ross has played a pivotal role in shaping the ISPE into the reputable institution it is today. As Ross prepares to bid farewell to his role, the ISPE Council and its members are taking the opportunity to celebrate his remarkable legacy.

“Ross’s wisdom and unwavering dedication have been instrumental in steering the Institute towards where it is today, and his absence will undoubtedly be felt by all who have had the privilege of working with him,” says ISPE’s Chris Carr who adds: “Ross’s dedicated service and invaluable contributions have left a mark on the institute and the swimming pool industry as a whole.”

While Ross’s departure marks the end of an era for the ISPE, it also heralds the beginning of an exciting new chapter. In a significant development for ISPE, a replacement for Ross has been chosen to guide the organisation into its next chapter.

Looking ahead, the ISPE remains steadfast in its mission to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and expertise within the swimming pool industry. With a new leader at the helm and Ross’s invaluable support, the Institute is well-positioned to build on these solid foundations for many years to come.
