Training and Education Task Force

There is a great need for quality e-discovery continuing education and training in the private sector and government covering many professions and occupations in the United States and around the world.

All sectors in the e-discovery field, from law firms to corporations, from government agencies to professional services firms, have distinct training and education needs. There is overlap and each sector needs to have a good understanding of what the other team members and colleagues do and how they perform their job.

For these reasons, the ACEDS training and educational offerings are crucial. As a member of the Training and Education Task Force you will play a key role in formulating and developing this vital part of ACEDS’ mission for the benefit of members in the United States and the rest of the world.

Work on the Task Force will put you in contact with many peers making your participation enriching and rewarding. The Task Force will suggest seminar topics, speakers, virtual training events, innovations, training materials and all the necessary parts of a quality training and education portfolio of a premiere member association.
