Dues monies go into our general fund, our only operating capital outside of grants and donations. From this fund we pay a nominal fee for shared office space, insurance, phone service, a part-time bookkeeper, tax accountant, our PO Box, membership related printing and mailing costs, and unsponsored events like our Annual Membership Meeting, town halls, candidate forums, etc. Without membership revenue DIA could not exist. Please join DIA today. DIA is a 501 (c) 6 non-profit organization supported through its dues paying members, grants, and through fees collected from special events.
