DEMA Hires Strategic Planning Professional to Help Guide the Future of the Association

Published

on

DEMA Show Keynote Session

Where do you see the Diving Industry in 20 years?  What is DEMA’s role in the future?  What do you want from your Industry Association?  These are questions that DEMA has asked often with a wide variety of answers from each of its five stakeholder groups.  It’s for this reason, and numerous others, that the DEMA Board has chosen to work with strategic planning professional, Jeff DeCagna, Chief Strategist of Principled Innovation LLC to help guide the Association into the future.

In 2011, DEMA began the process of “strategic learning,” by opening the 2020 Vision sessions at DEMA Show, Beneath the Sea and the Long Beach Scuba Show.  With input from a wide variety of industry stakeholders, the DEMA Board began implementing ideas raised in these sessions, including access to health insurance and programs promoting local diving.  In February of 2013, in preparation for the first face-to-face strategic learning opportunity in several years, the DEMA  Board began evaluating the Association and its programs in preparation for a strategic planning process that began earlier this year.  Under the guidance of Mr. DeCagna, DEMA collected data and industry feedback.  Now in 2014, additional feedback has been collected under the guidance of Mr. DeCagna using three different methodologies; targeted group phone conversations, an online data collector that is currently underway and a face-to-face strategic learning workshop that will be held in this month in San Diego.
For more information about the planning process and to offer suggestions/feedback, email info@dema.org.
