    Rebreatherworld removes the NACD section.

    Due to the recent failure of the NACD board of directors (BOD) to follow bylaws, rebreatherworld.com has removed the NACD section within RBW.

    This is not preventing RBW members from posting about the NACD, it just removes their dedicated section. New posts can be posted here in the "CCR & SCR cave diving and training" area.

    Rebreatherworld, Advanced Diver Magazine, and the Exploration Foundation has also discontinued as the host and coordinator for the up-coming NACD Rebreather Summit.

    All speakers scheduled by the host for this event have pulled their talks. All manufacturing sponsors gathered by the host for the summit have pulled their supporting funds.

    If and when the NACD ever recovers, the section will be reconsidered.

    Well maybe I'm the only one...but your post certainly makes me curious. What happened?

    I started looking up the bylaws, but w/o context I figured I should just ask.

    Good move Curt. Don't let them (NACD) drag the entire cave community down with them. Joel

    I've been following this latest fiasco on CDF and fully support this decision. Maybe the membership will wake up and take control.

    Great. I'm glad you know what it's about. Perhaps you'd educate the rest of us on the issue. Having got snippets on another forum I'm guessing it has to do with substance use or abuse depending on your point of view?

    By the way, a general question to Curt and Cap'n Bill - are you both members of NACD?

    Mostly a lot of political infighting, childish nonsense, all wrapped around an NACD instructor's bust for an alleged drug deal and the board's response to it. Look at CDF for more details.

    I am not a current member, this type of stuff, albeit on a less intense level, is what caused me to no longer support them.

    I currently support the NFSA. They have events and projects and that is it (so far). I hope it stays that way.
    Hope that helps.

    You might gain increased insight on TDS with the discussions going on there.

    Thanks for the TDS suggestion, I found a few posts that shed light on a recent "coup"?

    Re: Rebreatherworld removes the NACD section.

    I saw a post on another board which states NACD board are going to "close" some caves until the membership get back in line - I have no idea if this is accurate or not? Can anyone explain if there is any truth to this and what the BOD can and cannot do?
