The readership of The Journal of Diving History is worldwide in scope. It is now mailed to divers in 40 countries, including Russia and China, and is the official publication of the Historical Diving Societies of the United States, Canada and Mexico In an effort to improve the quality of THE JOURNAL of DIVING HISTORY magazine, the Board of Directors has approved a sponsorship program for the funding of THE JOURNAL of DIVING HISTORY in 2011.
Our projected operating budget for the year is $50,000. The HDSUSA is seeking 20 sponsors – companies or individuals – to donate $2,500.
In recognition of their support, sponsors will have their logos displayed in color on one-tenth of the back cover in all four 2011 issues. In addition, each company will receive a quarter-page full-color promotional ad in each of the quarterly issues. They will also receive acknowledgment on the HDSUSA web site and will be recognized as sponsors in our dive show booth. We display at almost every major consumer and trade show in the United States, Canada, Australia and Singapore, and our unique booth attracts a lot of attention.
Sponsorship of THE JOURNAL of DIVING HISTORY magazine provides an opportunity for successful companies to give something back to the broader diving community. A tax-deductible sponsorship donation will help insure that the history of diving technology is accurately and professionally recorded. It is an investment in the legacy that we will leave for those who will follow us. Please help us preserve the history of our industry.
