Ten Pools Receive AGRiP Recognition in First Half of 2021


AGRiP Recognition honors pools adhering to a recommended level of professional standards and industry best practices. Approximately a quarter of AGRiP member pools have achieved AGRiP Recognition. 

Whether applying for Recognition or not, all member pools can use the AGRiP Advisory Standards for Recognition to improve their governance, policies and procedures. 

We congratulate the 10 member pools granted Recognition in 2021 so far:
