Many talented individuals comprise the membership of the ACDE—and are always willing to share their knowledge and vast experiences.



Many talented individuals are involved in the ACDE—and have a wealth of knowledge and experience.


Newcomers and those entering the University-based CDE field have an opportunity to learn from experienced CDE directors and team members. Please contact one of the board members with your specific question, and we’ll match you to an ACDE member with the experience and knowledge to meet your needs.



The results of the annual survey of all members provide valuable information on the scope of ACDE member programs. The questionnaire includes details on tuition rates, honoraria amounts, program trends, cancellation fees, and a list of top programs. The results of the survey are discussed and distributed at the annual meeting in August.



The annual ACDE meeting is the perfect opportunity to meet face to face with your CDE colleagues from across the country. You will gain a wealth of knowledge and head back to the office with tons of practical information and renewed enthusiasm.
