"We recommend DAN Membership to our clients travelling to dive destinations throughout the South Pacific and beyond. As DAN Members, our clients travel with the reassurance of knowing if they encounter a diving related incident while travelling, they will receive advice and assistance from an Organisation whose existence is for Divers and has an understanding of the associated risks, medical symptoms and the importance of timely evacuation and medical treatment." - Markus Wunderlich travel&co

DAN Asia-Pacific Financials

DAN Asia-Pacific operates as a not-for-profit organisation and is subject to an annual audit by independent auditors.

The 2013 /2014 financial year saw growth in all areas.

Gross income increased by 7% comprising of an increase in Membership, now with a total of 10,561 members, which is an increase of 602 members from the 2012-13 financial year. Interest income was also higher due to better rates of interest on invested amounts.

The operating surplus of $100,221 has decreased slightly due to significant increases in insurance, payroll, accounting fees, freight and overseas travel costs.

Net assets have increased by 0.38% to $2,166,859. This is not as high as expected due to a decrease of $20K in the DAN AP Office building re-evaluation and there was also the removal of a $20K Motor Vehicle from the asset pool. Another temporary grant had been provided by DAN America.
