MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Mark your calendars for February 5-7, 2019, as Underwater Intervention returns to New Orleans. This is the must-attend event of the year for the entire underwater operations industry. Registration is open now, so make sure to visit www.underwaterintervention.com to register or for more information about UI2019.
 
As a valued industry stakeholder, your participation is vital to the outcome of this study. As you know, our communications offerings include UnderWater magazine, UnderWater Today e-newsletter, ADCI Advisory Notice, ADCI TV, our websites, ADCI Membership Directory, Online Buyers' Guide, conferences, social media offerings and more. The link to our survey can be found here and your responses will be kept in strict confidence. With your help, the association will gain a better understanding of how we are communicating with our members and stakeholders in today's constantly changing environment. Your participation in this survey will also help us identify a definitive set of best practices that will help us communicate with you even more efficiently than we have done so already. Again, the survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. I look forward to continuing to provide more value, more services and more benefits to you throughout the coming ADCI membership year!
