San Diego Spa Assn. and Southern California Spa Directors Assn. form The Spa Connection

Southern California Spa Professionals will soon have great to celebrate, the merge of The San Diego Spa Association and Southern California Spa Directors Association (SCSDA) into a newly formed organization The Spa Connection (TSC).

Dana Stallings, San Diego Spa Association Founder, enthuses 'with the launch of the San Diego Spa Association, it was thrilling, and overwhelming, to see how energized everyone was to have an association happen at a more regional level!  That enthusiasm, coupled with the Spa Connection Team's desire not to overwhelm professionals with overlapping events that duplicated efforts, led to the birth of the collaboration of the two groups.  We are also very excited to be able to initially offer Spas the opportunity to be involved as members without a membership fee.  Vendors and Preferred Partners will also have incredible opportunities to network with this powerful group of leading spas and showcase their products in a more intimate environment!', says Dana Stallings.

'Our Mission is to connect industry professionals, nurture their personal and professional growth, and enhance their ability to network and succeed in the spa industry.  Our purpose is to become a localized group and have honest feedback within our specific marketplace' states Jim Croghan, Co-Founder of SCSDA.

Scott Duncan, Co-founder of SCSDA, agrees. 'This enhanced association also brings a non-competitive nature to our Industry. This network has manifested into a collaboration of event hosting, philanthropic efforts and support of each other. We understand that there is enough business out there for all of us; we have chosen to help, bolster, mentor and support our counterparts to nature a healthy and thriving industry'.

Joanne Berry, Director of Education adds, 'Education is the foundation of the future of any industry. Bellus Academy is excited to bring an educational component into the association allowing our members to contribute to the ongoing development of education for the ever growing spa industry.
