This quote from James C. Penney perfectly describes DEMA’s mission: to create an expert community that members can depend on for cutting-edge professional development and networking opportunities, in an effort to establish and maintain high standards in the Private Service industry. One of the most important ways that we bring our forces together is through the annual DEMA Convention, being held this year in Orlando, FL. from September 18-20.

The theme of the 2015 DEMA Convention is “Going Global.” Seven years ago, the Domestic Estate Management Association was founded in the United States. DEMA grew quickly, to say the least. Local chapters appeared across the country. Through social media and articles, news and comments quickly spread about how DEMA could impact the careers of Private Service Professionals, and the industry overall.

It didn’t take long for that news to reach other shores. Last year, we had Private Service Professionals step forward to help establish chapters abroad. As a result of those initiatives, DEMA now has teams working in Europe and the United States. We are building an association that addresses the needs of the Private Service industry locally, nationally, and now internationally. I am proud to say that DEMA is definitely “Going Global.”

The 2015 DEMA Convention is going to be bigger and better than last year. With Private Service Professionals flying in from across the globe, the convention provides new and unique perspectives from all over the world. We are honored to be the world’s largest association for Private Service Professionals. Please come join us and see how you can grow both personally and professionally by being part of an industry-changing organization.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
