I am proud to say that I am a member of the San Diego DJ association or SDDJA for short. Now what is the SDDJA? Its an organization of professional DJ’s that are committed to a higher level of standards and quality of service we provide to our clients. Created in 1990 it’s the mission of this organization to…
“The San Diego Disc Jockey Association was formed to raise the level of professionalism and to establish performance and ethical standards in the Mobile Disc Jockey industry. Since its inception, SDDJA DJs and MCs throughout San Diego County have continued to exceed their clients’ expectations. When you choose a San Diego Disc Jockey Association DJ/MC for your wedding or special event, you can be certain you are hiring a reliable, experienced performer with the highest ethical commitment to making your event a tremendous success.”
Now I had been to meetings in the past and I know people within the organization but I never thought of joining. But I didn’t want to for all the wrong reasons. I felt that I already upheld a high level of standards and didn’t need to be apart of the group because I didn’t feel that I need to prove I knew that I was professional with a moniker. But it was one awesome conversation I had with not only the president of the organization but a very respected DJ here in San Diego (Jerry Beck of Beck’s Entertainment) that changed my thoughts about the process and why it would be a positive in my becoming part of the group. .
However, being a member is not that easy. I was not only interviewed, screened and observed during one of my performances but also voted (approval) in by senior members of the organization. The process took several weeks but I did eventually get the call and I was ecstatic.
I must say it feels pretty good being a member of the elite in our industry. I have also made some new friends and have even opened up myself to more knowledge and experience of other members that love what they do as much as I do. Today is a good day! 🙂 DJ Pat
