Need help navigating the CARES Act: Paycheck Protection Program? Join DEMA's President & CEO, Tom Ingram, for a look at the NEW Paycheck Protection Program from the U.S. Small Business Administration, designed for small U.S.-based dive businesses, independent contractors, sole proprietors, and many non-profit organizations. 

Learn which U.S. businesses are eligible (almost all U.S. small businesses); how and where to apply; how the loan can be forgiven; and how it can help your dive business meet payroll, rent, utilities, and more during this COVID-19 outbreak. This on-demand webinar will provide an overview of the program in less than 30 minutes! Let DEMA help you navigate this crucial program! 
Infinite Scuba, an online underwater video game, will provide DEMA affiliates with codes that you can then offer to your customers who aren't able to access dive sites and the underwater world during the pandemic. Request your codes today and start sharing!
The deadline to submit online nominations for the prestigious Reaching Out Award has been extended to 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

Since 1989, the Reaching Out Award has been presented to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the sport of diving by "reaching out" in some special way to improve the sport for everyone.
