Where great minds meet to research, share,
and shape CDI strategy 

2024 Platinum Sponsor:


The ACDIS Leadership Council debuted in September 2019 to connect forward-thinking CDI supervisors, managers, and directors through personalized insight-sharing and networking experiences that forge valuable relationships, advance strategic priorities, and illuminate game-changing trends.

Council applications for the 2023/2024 term, which will run September 2023 through August 2024, are now closed. Applicants were notified of appointments in early September. If you'd like to be notified when the applications open again in summer 2024, please fill out our alert list by clicking here.

Initial offerings include:

►Research insights: The ACDIS Leadership Council is powered by member research and intelligence on mission-critical CDI subjects. Throughout the year, members take up to eight sponsor and editor-designed surveys on topics essential to their work and receive early access to research findings. Members must participate in at least 75% of offered surveys to maintain their Council standing and benefit access.
►Virtual network building: With an exclusive online community and bimonthly members-only calls, plus small-group professional matchmaking opportunities, Council members will have unprecedented, ongoing access to fellow CDI leaders who share their enthusiasm for peer exchange and bring fresh perspective to business challenges and opportunities.
►Custom experiences: Council members receive exclusive invitations to opportunities tailored to their areas of interest and expertise, such as the annual CDI Leadership Exchange. This intimate event brings together up to 40 industry leaders for roundtable-style idea-swapping, problem-solving, and networking in a resort setting. Eligible members are also able to apply for one of the ACDIS Leadership Council Mastermind groups annually. Mastermind groups consist of eight to 10 members who agree to meet bimonthly to discuss member-submitted topics.

For the founding Council, ACDIS tapped CDI leaders who are energized by the prospect of pioneering this dynamic new community dedicated to peer exchange, goal achievement, and advancement of collective knowledge and best practices.
