Dear Fellow NAUI Members:

The NAUI Board of Directors Election starts today.  On behalf of the 12 Candidates on the ballot I thank you for exercising your right to VOTE.  The ability to VOTE for our Board Representatives is what sets NAUI apart from other agencies.    As one of your future representatives, I am asking for your VOTE today.

 NAUI has made incredible gains in the past two years with the addition of new members to the NAUI BOD and NSG Staff.  We have started on the path to recovery but there is still much work to do.  As we move forward with a strong commitment to quality courses, higher standards and better customer service, we are still in need of a strong marketing strategy, transparent internal and external communications, and stronger brand recognition for NAUI goods and services worldwide.  We need better promotion and support for our International Members and increased market share in Retail Dive Centers, Dive Operators and Resort Destinations Worldwide.  This election is all about bringing on experienced NAUI Board Members who have the necessary professional skills and industry contacts that NAUI needs, a history of successful industry employment, and a temperament suited for working constructively with such a talented, unique and diverse membership.  We must have tech savvy individuals who know how to communicate with different and demographically distinct markets and a desire to promote NAUI extensively on an international scale.

For NAUI to regain its Leadership position in the Industry we must have experienced Directors who will work with the entire NAUI Membership, our current Boards of Directors, and our Headquarters Staff to ensure that NAUI Worldwide lives up to its full industry potential as a great training organization.  Collectively we can make NAUI better.

I have been fortunate to receive endorsements from some of the most successful Industry Leaders and NAUI Professionals in the Industry, like Jean-Michel Cousteau, Bob Brayman, John Duggan, Capt. Spencer Slate, Floyd Holcom, Claude Jewell, Jennifer King, Dan Orr, Bob Peck, Lt. Bill Pfeiffer and Jeanne Sleeper who believe that making NAUI the best training agency is a collective effort. Please see my complete Bio at www.UnderseaShowcase.com/bio/  and a special letter to NAUI Members from Jean-Michel Cousteau at http://wp.me/p1e8iT-r7

NAUI’s Future is indeed a bright one.  There really is no limit to what we can achieve together in the next four years.  It is a future that will require experience, cooperation and dedication.  Thank you for your VOTE on November 2, 2015.
