DEMA’s 2019 Board of Directors will convene during a conference call on May 2nd for the second Board Meeting of the year. Topics of discussion will focus on ways to help grow the Industry and maximize DEMA’s benefits for Members.

The Board meeting will begin by voting to approve the “consent agenda,” a Robert’s Rules of Order device used to obtain “general consent” intended to expedite approval of routine items. The Board is provided consent agenda items in advance of the Board Meeting, allowing them to study the documents in detail prior to the meeting, and permitting approval without additional discussion.  Consent agendas help the Board spend its limited meeting time discussing forward-thinking items; policy and strategic issues that demand its attention.

For May’s meeting, the consent agenda includes:

  • DEMA 2019 Q1 Dashboard
  • 2019 Q1 Financial Summary and Manufacturer’s Fund Report
  • DEMA Show 2019 Update
  • 2019 Q1 Membership Update
  • 2019 Q1 Research Committee Minutes
  • 2019 Q1 Public Policy Committee Report
  • 2019 Q1 Emerging Leaders Task Force Minutes
  • 2019 Q1 Go Dive Now Report

Following approval of the consent agenda, the Board will conduct a review of the current fiscal and membership year. The conference call will conclude with the Board covering any new business or consent agenda items that may require further discussion.

More information on DEMA’s Board of Directors and Bylaws is available on the DEMA website. Complete minutes from past Board of Directors Meetings are available to current DEMA Members from the Member Dashboard of www.dema.org. The next Board of Directors Meeting will be held on August 15th and 16th.
