Executive Director, Dive Industry Association, Inc.
DEMA Member # A3-2922
On December 15, 2013, DEMA will hold an election for five seats on their Board of Directors. As of August 21, that’s 116 days away. According to their by-laws, DEMA will submit a slate of candidates to their membership not less than ninety (90) days prior to the date of the election. Organizations like DEMA are always looking for qualified candidates who will consider running for their Board of Directors. As Industry Professionals, we have a duty and a responsibility to volunteer our time, money and manpower to help make our industry a better place to work and earn a living. We join trade associations to help grow our business and strengthen our industry. The size of our industry is small and getting smaller. Do you have what it takes to help make it bigger and better? If you are a current DEMA Member will you consider running for the DEMA Board of Directors?
Dive Industry Association has been a DEMA Member since our inception back in 2001 and we have exhibited at the annual trade show almost every year since then. Many of our Members are also Members of DEMA. As a DEMA Member we would like to nominate five people to be considered for this year’s slate. Please contact Gene Muchanski at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in having your name submitted to the DEMA Nominating Committee. We are looking for one person in each of the five stakeholder categories to run for the Board. If more than one person in a category is interested we’ll conduct a “primary of our own” to choose the best possible candidate.
Do your part to help make this industry better. Volunteer to run for the DEMA Board of Directors.
