Speaker Bio:

Dewey Case serves The Family YMCA of Southeast Mississippi as the Association Aquatics Director, and he also recently accepted the role of Technical Director for the Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC). His career started as a part time lifeguard, evolved into servicing pools, then began managing aquatic facilities while in college. Upon graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi, he served in the pool management industry before moving on to the Y. During his career, he has served the YMCA of the USA by providing expertise in aquatic safety, most notably serving as the volunteer project lead for the 2011 revision of the Y-USA Aquatic Safety Guidelines. Prior to 2011 he also served the local and state chapters of the American Red Cross, chairing the local Preparedness, Health, & Safety (PHSS) committee, and serving on the state Quality Assurance committee. He served on the Lifeguarding and Bather Supervision Technical Committee for the MAHC 1st Edition, as well as serving on the Technical Review Committee for the MAHC 3rd Edition. He was recognized as a self-proclaimed “aquatics lifer” by Aquatics International in the 2018 Power Issue. Holding multiple Instructor Trainer certifications from the American Red Cross, as well as instructor credentials with the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance, he enjoys helping other aquatic facilities improve operations, and helping young aquatics professionals hone and develop their craft, whether in rescue and response, pool operations, management, training lifeguards, or teaching swimming.
