Founded in 1968, the ADCI was created to cultivate and promote commercial diving, establish uniform safety standards, and encourage industry-wide adherence to these standards. The association today includes more than 600 companies, schools and vendors, in more than 40 countries.

“The mission of the ADCI is so crucial to the work that we do, and the level of safety regulations that work requires,” said Pierson. “Because it is vitally important to our industry – and to Global – I am proud to serve on the board.”

The mission of the American Salvage Association is to be a unifying association of the commercial marine salvage industry. The ASA strives to ensure open communication and cooperation with regulatory authorities that result in prompt, effective response, meeting regularly with various federal and state agencies to exchange views on the improvement of salvage and firefighting response in North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean Sea.

"I look forward to working closely with the salvage industry and stakeholders in supporting the mission of the ASA," said DeVilbiss. "The recent increase in association membership and various responses throughout the Americas has highlighted the true depth of services offered by our members. Whether it be protecting assets at sea, keeping navigable waterways open, or protecting the environment from pollution, our organizations' members have much to offer."
