Planning Leads to Success
At DFI, September and October are the
months when we put the finishing touches
on the Annual Conference after more than
a year of planning. Back in 1999 (the first
DFI conference I organized) I recall
equating the yearlong project to planning a
wedding. So much goes into it for months
and months, excitement builds, and then
it's over in the blink of an eye. Well, this
year, I had a real wedding to plan in tandem
with the conference - that of my oldest
son and his beautiful fiancée, now wife,
which took place the day before the
conference started. Talk about busy! Both
affairs were important to me, and I'm
pleased to say both turned out to be
wonderful and exciting: The wedding, in a beautiful lakeside setting in upstate
New York, and the conference, 400-plus miles away in Maryland. I'm still basking
in the glow of the wedding festivities, and left the conference inspired by the
energy emanating from the abundance of young professionals who presented and
engaged in the technical committee meetings, plus the camaraderie of the
conference goers, and the efforts of our staff who did a bang-up job of attending to
all the meticulous details.
Due to travel time to these back-to-back events, the DFI Board of Trustees
D.J. and Desiree Rappaport
meeting was held in two sessions, partially online the week before, and partially
during a conference session. It was not ideal but I'm grateful for the board's
flexibility and understanding that a proud mom's son's wedding is a priority.
We shared a lot of important information in that two-part board meeting. One

change I want to highlight and acknowledge relates to a difficult discussion we had
on the financial status of the organization. Due to a COVID-19 pandemic hangover,
inflation and the economy, a substantial loss is projected for 2022. This is in addition
to depreciation of DFI's rainy day investment fund. Following a survey of the highest
supporting corporate membership class, it was decided to increase 2023 dues for
Classes I, II and III by 10% and Class IV by 58%.
We cannot thank the DFI corporate member companies enough for the
overwhelming support of the increase, stating the value they receive being worth
the added cost. To honor this support, we at DFI are dedicated to continually
improving our offerings, producing valuable content and being responsive to
member requests and suggestions.
Now on to the planning for the next conference (and wedding). Believe it or not
my youngest son is getting married a month before the 2023 Annual Conference
in Seattle!
