MAHC Tracks are educational sessions on the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) presented by CMAHC, a member-driven nonprofit organization that exists exclusively to advocate, evolve, innovate, promote implementation, and make recommendations to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on needed updates to the CDC’s Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC). 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.
The following MAHC Tracks will be available at the conference, led by CMAHC team members and other leaders in the aquatics industry:
In addition to the MAHC Tracks, CMAHC is sponsoring a Safety Plan Workshop, hosted by Mike Espino, on Sunday, Feb. 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; and CMAHC’s Technical Director, Dewey Case, will lead a Certified Pool Operator (CPO) course on Sunday, Feb. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CMAHC will also host an Environmental Health Leaders Forum on Thursday, Feb. 16 from 11:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This free forum is an exclusive, half-day roundtable discussion for EH leaders only, and lunch will be provided.

“CMAHC is thrilled to, once again, host MAHC Tracks at AOAP 2023,” said Kristie Riester, Executive Director, CMAHC. “We are appreciative of the AOAP to offer such a valuable, must-attend event. Our collective goal through the MAHC Tracks is to expand our reach by bringing in members of the public health, academia, builders, and designer audiences – all of which have a common need for MAHC use and adoption.”
“AOAP is excited for our partnership with CMAHC to bring additional educational opportunities to all aquatics professionals in the technical and health inspector fields,” said Juliene Hefter, Executive Director and CEO, AOAP. “It is through this partnership that AOAP is able to continue its mission of being a “One Stop Shop” for all aquatic professionals no matter what area of aquatics they are involved with. AOAP partners with numerous groups to ensure that all aspects of aquatics are covered during our Annual Conference and Exposition. We hope to see you all there!”
