Note from the Director: ACDIS announces new timeline for advisory board applications and elections

The ACDIS advisory board recently announced a new timeline for applications and elections to serve on the board. Beginning in 2017, the application period will open in mid-January. Candidates will have three weeks to complete their application. A committee will review applications and narrow the pool of applicants down to a group of finalists, who will be selected by a popular vote of the membership in mid-March. The results of the election will be announced in early April and our new board members will be introduced at that time.

Each year four new board members are voted on and four rotate off.

In 2017, ACDIS will open up the application period on Monday, January 9, and it will run through Monday, January 30.

Why should you run for the ACDIS advisory board? ACDIS advisory board members are engaged in the CDI profession. They are forward thinkers, with a positive vision of evolution of the CDI profession. They must be ACDIS national members in good standing and possess the CCDS certification.

ACDIS advisory board members learn from each other and the ACDIS membership, whom they serve. They are content experts who provide insight on our quarterly membership calls, contribute to our position and white papers, and speak on panel sessions at the ACDIS conference.

Above all they care about the CDI profession and want to make a difference in healthcare.

If the above sounds like you and something you want to be a part of, we encourage you to apply.

You can view the complete list of qualifications here, as well as the nomination and election process and frequently asked questions: http://www.acdis.org/membership/boards#advisory.

You will also find a list of presently serving ACDIS advisory board members and their email addresses; they are happy to answer any questions you may have about the requirements, time commitment, and benefits of board service.

We look forward to your application! Please keep an eye out for the official opening of the application period on January 9.
