ACDIS update: Less than two weeks left to apply for a committee volunteer position!
Looking to get more involved in the CDI community? ACDIS’ volunteer boards and committees contribute to the association’s best-practice guidance, plan celebrations and appreciation programs, review materials for publication, vote for awards, advocate on behalf of all ACDIS members, and more. Considering all the professional development and personal networking opportunities available during a member’s term of service, being a committee volunteer can have an immeasurable impact on you, your CDI program, and the CDI community at large.
ACDIS is currently calling for volunteers for four of our committees. Each committee has eight to 12 members who serve for a total of one to three years depending on the committee. Applicants from all professional and personal backgrounds, geographic locations, and organization types are encouraged to apply and help our committees continue to represent the community at large.
