The NSS-CDS board of directors in conjunction with the NSS-CDS training committee is developing a list qualified cave divers who we feel are properly trained to act as guides and/or mentors for cave divers who want to dive with a guide or mentor.

The NSS-CDS is looking for volunteers for the Event Committee. This committee would work with David Jones and would perform activities needed for the representation of the NSS-CDS at functions like Beaneath the Sea, DEMA and other social events where the NSS-CDS may have a booth.
