The Canadian Naval Divers Association (CNDA) was founded in January 1981
at Halifax, Nova Scotia. It cannot exist without annual dues to take
care of the administrative and functional aspects of the association.
The CNDA is strictly a non-profit organization that exists solely to
serve the needs as set put in the association charter. In order to
maintain "membership in good standing" status, annual dues in the amount
of $15.00 per annum are required. They are due at the beginning of the
calendar year and members have 90 days to make payment to maintain their
active status. Payment is to be direct to either the local Chapter
Treasurer or directly to the National Treasurer and can be made for
multiple years if so desired. Contact information for these individuals
can be found on the CNDA
Executive page. Once payment has been received, a master membership
list will be updated and available for the association executive to
monitor and review.
