Extract from Zef Deda's article "ACEDS Detroit: No Place Like Home"
This past week ACEDS Detroit 4th Annual eDiscovery Symposium at Greektown Casino was a huge success. I first attended this event last year when I moved back to Michigan after living in Denver for a couple years. I was impressed with how active and collaborative the eDiscovery community was here. After the event, I called up my CEO and said “We need to be a part of this”. I spent a year lobbying the management team to invest, and we finally took the leap to sponsor this event. The great news is, I don’t need to convince anyone anymore! After my CEO and project managers joined the event, they immediately saw the value. Acorn will be a part of this event for many years to come and here are just a few reasons why.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
