As SUTDIVING club, we aim to promote scuba diving as a sport in a safe yet fun environment, and the importance of protecting our oceans. To do so we organise diving trips at least once every term, and have Marine Life Conservation Booths to raise awareness of climate issues.
As the acting club president, I have since conducted 3 successful diving trips to both Tioman and Bali with the help of my executive committee thus far. We were responsible for liasing with the external dive vendor to ensure proper equipment and lodging was provided, making sure our participants were safe and comfortable at all times.
Organising these dive trips really got me to step out of my comfort zone. Although I have had experience on similar diving trips before, being the leader and organiser of the trip was more complicated than I thought. I had to ensure the dive vendor's safety procedures were up to standard, plan the trip dates, publicise the event and ensure the trip is conducted smoothly. It was important for me to be organised, and be firm in my instructions to keep the participants in check. I was also lucky to have the previous club president around to teach me the ropes - without his help, managing the club would be incredibly hard for me.
Below is a gallery of the memorable moments I've had in the club so far, including trip vlogs and the designs of postcards I made to publicise our dive trips.
