POOLaide: free webinars for uncertain times

The aquatics industry is in crisis due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Many aquatic professionals are facing professional, financial, and personal uncertainty. I want to bring together industry leaders to speak on topics of their expertise as a way to make "lemonade out of lemons" during facility closures and physical distancing.
