I would tend toward using 'has' but I know there are many natives who would use 'have', perhaps because an association is a group of many people.
If you are aiming at authentic American English, use "has"; if British, use "have". CJ

Is British (English) English not 'authentic' ... indeed the MOST 'authentic' ?
Hi jjjdolfan,

English isn't my native Language, but I think you should use "have" once you have in the sentence "Northeast Spa and Pool Association", it means 1 and other that is equal to "they", so "they have" and it isn't "she/he/it has".

Well, just my opnion.Emotion: wink
All varieties are authentic. There is no MOST authentic.
The "authentic" was intended to be within the scope of both clauses.

Thank you for your opinion, but I most heartily disagree.
