As a member of DIFI all organizations are expected to sign up for at least one committee.  The delegates and alternates are obviously welcome to do so but if they can convince some other willing soul to serve on a committee we would love to have them as well.

The number and duties of the committees changes from time to time and some committees are busier than others, and some committees vary greatly from year to year depending on what we think we have time to work on.  Each committee is ultimately the responsibility of an officer, but many committees have a separate chairperson who does most of the work.

The current (as of 2016) committees and their responsibilities are:


DIFI is a non-profit organization, and the officers and board members are all volunteers.  Our fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30, which means that our IRS form 990’s are always dated “a year behind”.  As an example, the proceeds for the May 2015 Festival would be reported in our federal tax year of 2014.  However, for Ohio that same fiscal year gets reported as 2015.  Our Federal 990’s are available online.  A summary of our Ohio online charitable filing can be found here (search for “dayton international”).

In order to keep our ticket prices as low as we can we have turned to seeking sponsors.  If your business or organization, whether for-profit or not, would like to investigate our sponsorship opportunities we would love to talk to you – contact our President, Rosetta.
