Local chapter update: Planning a chapter meeting? Tell ACDIS!

CDI Strategies - Volume 12, Issue 51

It’s hard to believe that we’re already nearing the holiday season and the end of the year, but there are still lots of local chapter events coming up this fall and into the winter.

If your local chapter is holding an event in the coming months, please take a moment to review the list below and contact Associate Editorial Director Melissa Varnavas (mvarnavas@acdis.org) and Editor Linnea Archibald (larchibald@acdis.org) if you don’t find yours listed.

If the ACDIS staff knows when and where your event is taking place, they can help you reach more people in your geographic area and offer guidance as you plan.

When sending your event info, please include the following details:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Location
  • Any relevant details you’d like to include (e.g., save-the-date flyer, agenda, registration link, etc.)
  • Name and email address of the event contact

We look forward to hearing about your plans! Remember, too, that ACDIS allows its local chapters to apply for continuing education credits free of charge but leadership must complete the application form 30-days prior to the event.

The following is a list of upcoming events for ACDIS local chapters. If you have an upcoming event you would like to include, please email Melissa Varnavas (mvarnavas@acdis.org) and Linnea Archibald (larchibald@acdis.org).
