GDNVolunteers Needed for Evaluation of New Go Dive Now Video
DEMA is preparing to create two new 30-second Go Dive Now Video commercials to add to the Go Dive Now Member Toolkit, with the videos to be completed prior to the end of calendar year 2019. We are seeking DEMA Member volunteers to help us determine the best video topics and to help provide guidance and feedback during the planning of these videos. Participation in this effort will help DEMA provide Members with access to new Go Dive Now advertising resources in the Go Dive Now Toolkit and will help market diving to potential new customers. 

For consideration, please apply by July 29, 2019.
