What is the Vote on the Code Conference?

Every few years, the Vote on the Code conference brings together members of the aquatics industry, public health, and academia to participate in the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) update process. Governed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the MAHC is the only all-inclusive national pool code that addresses current aquatic issues and provides voluntary guidelines to prevent injury and illness at public aquatic venues.

As a member-driven nonprofit organization, CMAHC exists exclusively to advocate, evolve, innovate, promote implementation, and make recommendations to the CDC on needed updates to the MAHC through the Vote on the Code conference. CMAHC members and other stakeholders use their voices and expertise to review the current edition of the MAHC, submit change requests intended to keep the MAHC current, and then vote on the change requests. The process is facilitated by the CMAHC staff and its volunteer Technical Review Committee, with the proposed changes voted on by CMAHC’s membership and shared with the CDC to align the MAHC with the latest science and best practices.


Will a virtual attendance / online option be available?

The 2020 Vote on the Code Conference was held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are looking forward to being back in person in 2024. While nothing is confirmed, we are exploring a virtual option for the 2024 conference for those who may not be able to attend in person.
