Offerings and benefits

The ACDIS Leadership Council grew out of conversations with CDI leaders about their need for a dedicated space to engage deeply and meaningfully with peers throughout the year, and it will continue to evolve based on member feedback.


Foundational offerings include:

►Research insights: The ACDIS Leadership Council is powered by member research and intelligence on mission-critical CDI subjects. Throughout the year, members will have the opportunity to take up to eight succinct 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 quarterly members-only calls at launch, plus small-group professional matchmaking in store, 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 will 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. The 2018 gathering in Orlando, Florida, boasted a 100% overall satisfaction rating among respondents to an attendee feedback survey and produced incisive discussion on essential topics and emerging trends, such as CDI department expansion.


Through their active participation in the community, Council members will receive a range of exclusive benefits and resources, including:

Entry to a members-only online community connected to the ACDIS website.
First access to Council survey results and research findings, plus the opportunity to submit questions for review and potential inclusion in future surveys.
Regular virtual meetings to unpack the latest Council research findings, swap leadership strategies and best practices, and discuss top-of-mind membership and industry developments.
