ACDIS recently updated its website Local Chapter networking page. To connect with Local Chapter leaders networking in your area, click on the orange and gray map on the landing page. When your state turns purple, the text below the map will provide a list of local networking groups and the leaders' contact information. If you do not see your area listed, contact ACDIS Associate Director Melissa Varnavas at 781/639-1872, Ext. 3711, or e-mail

If you are searching for a specific event, click on the navigation button at the top of the page which states "Chapter Meetings." A calendar will appear which lists events taking place this month across the country. Chapter leaders looking to post information regarding an upcoming event should login to ACDIS, click on the "Add a Chapter Meeting" button also located in the top navigation bar and fill out the form as indicated.
You may also search for regular local chapter meeting updates on the ACDIS Blog. Visit the Blog and type the name of the state where your meeting is expected to be held. Any posts which mention that state will show up in the search results. You can also click on the "Local Chapters-Networking Groups" tab under categories.
Those interested in starting a local ACDIS chapter should review the materials collected under the "Getting Started" tab and contact ACDIS Associate Director Melissa Varnavas by e-mail at
Note, you do not need to be an ACDIS member to become a member of an ACDIS Local Chapter at this time. However, members of official ACDIS Local Chapters do receive a discount off ACDIS National membership dues. Contact your Local Chapter leader(s) to learn more.
