Membership enrollment for 2019-2020 is now open!
Detroit Irish Music Association (DIMA) is our local branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCÉ), an international organization based in Ireland, whose worldwide mission is to promote and preserve traditional Irish music.
We offer membership options both with and without membership in our parent organization, CCÉ. This allows for a more economical DIMA-Only membership option, where all funds are kept locally to support our branch's activities. Alternately, one can join both DIMA and CCÉ for a discounted combined price, in order to support the mission of both our local organisation, and our global parent organization.
