The National Plasterers Council (NPC) history goes back to the creation of the Plasterers Council under the auspices of the Southern California Chapter of the National Spa & Pool Institute. With the vision and work of Bruce Hughes, the Council was formed to provide a voice and support for swimming pool plasterers. From its formation in 1988, the Council has been focused on studying plaster surface problems and the writing of technically sound practices for the industry. Other priorities include nationwide membership recruitment, new member benefits, and new educational opportunities including a pool surface applicator certification program. NPC has a very strong foundation and vision which will take the association to new levels now and in the future. For more information, visit NPConline.org.
