A Message from the ADCI President

Bo Ristic

As this challenging year comes to a close, I would like to express my appreciation for your continued trust and loyalty, your contribution and your faith in ADCI.

While we’ve all faced unprecedented challenges that we never imagined, this time has underscored the importance of strength and resilience, connectivity, humanity and kindness. Combined with experience and willingness to do what is right in our industry I can say with confidence – our best days are in front of us. As we’ve seen in the past – there is always sun after the storm.

Although our holidays may be different due to the pandemic, one thing will remain unchanged – our collective commitment to our mission statement:

  • To promote the highest possible level of safety in the practice of commercial diving and underwater operations.
  • To promote proper and adequate training and education for industry personnel.
  • To foster open communication within the underwater industry.
  • To hold accountable all members in adherence to the Consensus Standards for Commercial Diving and Underwater Operations.

As you prepare for 2021, let’s remember ADCI represents the commercial diving industry around the world. Founded in 1968, the Association of Diving Contractors International, Inc. was originally a small group of diving companies with a goal to create a nonprofit organization dedicated to the art and science of commercial diving. The establishment of industry-wide safe standards for commercial diving was the foundation upon which ADCI was built. Since then, ADCI has grown to encompass more than 600 member companies, furnishing services and/or support for the conduct of safe underwater operations from 41 nations throughout the world.

On behalf of the Association, thank you for being a valued supporter and allowing us to continue to serve you. We wish you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.
