If you are an ACEDS member, you probably have noticed that our website looks different. That's because we are proud to introduce the all-new ACEDS website and member management platform.
ACEDS members can now work together, learn and network outside of the glare of social media and the crush of email communication. You can log in at your convenience and join your peers for assistance, conversations and contribution. There is now a general member forum, and forums for CEDS only, for those new to e-discovery and for other special groups, like our Chapter Leadership, faculty and Advisory Board.
Here's how to get the most out of the new site.
To get started, here is the sign in link and forgot password link:Once signed in, you can add information into your profile page, including a bio and photo to let other members know more about you and to connect and network with other members. (To update your information, click My Account -> Edit Bio). You can also edit your password and user name in the Member Profile.
Once logged in, the My Dashboard link takes you to your new hub for site content.
You can now easily renew or update your account. To renew, visit Renewal (My Account -> Membership -> Securely Renew Your Membership Now). If you have an open invoice or payment due, a notification will appear on that page. Members can now extend or add a joint membership with EDRM or other options available. You can also upgrade your account or join your local ACEDS Chapter through this section.
On the Manage Profile page, you can find a new Professional Development tab automatically tracks all of your ACEDS credits and training earned. You can also track CLE credits and other professional development training and certifications earned with organizations outside of ACEDS.
ACEDS members can also access courses and webinars from one convenient location. You can quickly see which courses and sessions you have attended.
And of course, you can find timely and important news content from ACEDS and its partners under Articles and Whitepapers.
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!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
