The problem with the dive industry is quite a common occurence that family run business have - the executives aren't familiar with how a professional association should truly run.
You almost have to think (that's a good thing) that these executives were plucked from a family run business and dropped right into an organization that should run like a financial institution - profitable without pissing off the end user - Divers and investors.
