Please be sure to include your e-mail address or fax number on your application form to become a member. Please also note that a group membership (Center or Organization) does not fulfill your membership requirement for your CDA renewal. However, our individual memberships (Basic, Professional, Professional Plus, or Student) do.
Please contact The Council for Professional Recognition for any questions about the CDA or CDA renewal (www.cdacouncil.org).
We look forward to your membership with ACEI!
