Professional of the Year nominations
It’s time to submit your nominations for the 2012 CDI Professional of the Year award. Each year the ACDIS annual conference committee selects one CDI Professional of the Year Award winner and two winners of Recognition of CDI Professional Achievement to be recognized at the annual conference. The fifth annual ACDIS Conference will be held May 10-11 in San Diego.

The winner of the Professional of the Year award receives free admission to the ACDIS annual conference. All three winners are recognized before their peers at the conference’s networking and awards luncheon.
Nominees should be ACDIS members who have a passion for the CDI profession and adhere to the ACDIS Code of Ethics. Consider nominating those who may have made a difference to your hospital’s CDI program or someone who positively influenced your CDI team. We also encourage you to nominate individuals who have made an impact on the broader CDI profession, outside of their own programs.
Click here to download the 2012 award nomination form. It is in ‘word’ format; you can type into the form and return it as instructed in the form. The deadline for nominations is February 3. For additional information, e-mail ACDIS Director Brian Murphy at
Poster Session submissions sought
The 2012 ACDIS Conference will again include a poster session as part of its conference offerings. It’s an informal way for hospitals to share their CDI-related successes with each other, network, and exchange ideas and information.
If you would like to present your poster at this year’s conference, please download our poster application form, complete it, and e-mail it to ACDIS Director Brian Murphy at Accepted poster presenters will receive a 50% discount off the price of conference admission.
Any and all ideas are welcome. View a complete listing of last year’s poster presenters on the ACDIS blog or download the 2011 ACDIS Conference Special Section. All final decisions on posters will be made by the 2012 ACDIS Conference Committee. The deadline to submit your poster is Friday, February 24.
Additional conference hotel rooms secured
ACDIS has secured an additional 300 hotel rooms at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, San Diego, for Friday, May 11.
The discounted room rate is $199 per night, a rate honored through April 16. However, ACDIS strongly recommends early registration as the first Friday evening room block already sold out.
