The International Spa Association (ISPA) has announced the election of Garrett Mersberger, director of wellness and Kohler Waters Spas at Kohler Co., as chairman of the ISPA Board of Directors. Effective immediately, Mersberger has replaced previous ISPA chairman Todd Shaw.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as chairman of the ISPA Board of Directors,” says Mersberger. “I am grateful for the confidence the board has shown in me and am privileged to serve our members in a greater capacity.”

The change comes as Shaw accepted the position of national manager – country club for Technogym, which inspired him to change his ISPA membership category from a spa to a resource partner. Per the associations bylaws, the change indicates Shaw will no longer to be able to serve as chairman. Mersberger steps into the role having previously served as secretary and treasurer on the board.
