Local chapter update: Summertime chapter events coming to you

CDI Strategies - Volume 16, Issue 24

Summer is heating up and local chapter events with it. As the temperatures rise, chapters and networking groups are booking more meetings—some in-person and some virtual—to connect with their members and provide education over the vacation months.

If you’ve never joined a chapter before, now is a perfect time to get involved. Those chapters hosting virtual events are also typically open to attendees from other states dialing in and taking advantage of the educational and networking offerings too!

The following is a list of upcoming events for ACDIS local chapters. Visit your local chapter’s webpage on the ACDIS site for additional information about upcoming meetings. To join a chapter if you haven’t already or to update your chapter contact information/affiliation, click here.
