What if I am not a member of any committee?
Don’t worry, you can still be a part of the Members Assembly. Being a DFI Member gives you the ‘Right to Vote’ on all recommendations of various committees. You can choose to oppose a particular recommendation of the committee and provide appropriate reasons for the same if you do not agree to the same. The committee and the working groups will make sure all suggestions are worked upon.

Don’t worry, you can still have access to the DFI recommendations on our website once they are finalized and published on our website.
Looking forward to working with all of you. Happy Droning! 😉
