By accessing this website and/or the products, services, programs, membership or information herein, you acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions.

Use of Personal Information

I understand that CDI collects only the information necessary to establish membership with the organization, and that CDI does not distribute information to outside mailing lists or organizations. Only the information necessary to promote my service and provide a means for a potential customer to contact me will be made available on the CDI site.

I understand that I may request certain contact information be withheld from my public profile, and that CDI will be glad to comply or instruct me in how to personally edit my displayed information.

Advertisers, Affiliates, Partners, and Career Service/Resume Writer Providers

I understand that CDI provides links on their website to other companies and organizations, including through their Find a Career Pro database. I do not hold CDI responsible for the content of these other sites or any promises, guarantees, statements or other issues pertaining to business practices and services they offer. I accept that these organizations are not held or bound by CDI policies. I will refer to each individual site to procure this information.

Ethics and Standards of Participation in CDI

CDI was founded in the year 2000 and has been growing ever since as a community of like-minded industry leaders who want to be better at what they do, from providing career and resume services to growing their business. I accept that members are friendly, open, and ethical, and are expected to emulate CDI leadership in maintaining high professional standards and lifelong learning.

I understand that CDI has a zero tolerance policy for slander, abuse, or flaming on any member discussion board, and that this behavior can result in the revocation of my discussion board privileges.

Read full elist rules and guidelines.

Read full membership standards of conduct.

Purchase Policies

By making this purchase I agree that I have read over any rules and guidelines detailed on the webpage of the item or service being purchased.

I understand that CDI holds a firm no refund policy after registration for a product, service, program, award competition, or membership. Failure to use or complete use of the purchase is at my discretion and I will not hold CDI accountable.

I understand that membership is a prerequisite for any course, certification, or award competition purchase. If my membership should lapse and I choose not to renew, I understand that I will not be able to complete my course, remain entered in the competition, or earn my certification with CDI unless membership is reinstated. I further understand that all course registrations are good for one year, unless my membership should expire before that time and I choose not to renew.

I understand that I am bound by the renewal requirements listed in the website descriptions of any course I might purchase. If I do not meet these renewal requirements, I understand that I will be required to stop using the credential and cease using the logo or name. Further, I understand that if my membership lapses while a credential is still current, CDI reserves the right to remove me from the site listing of individuals having earned said credential.

Annual Conference (Summit) Refund Policies

Payment plan fees will not be refunded under any circumstances. 

All discounted memberships purchased in conjunction with conference registration will revert to full price upon the cancellation of registration.

Cancellations received before June 1, 2014 will be refunded minus a $75.00 cancellation fee. Those received between June 2, 2014 and August 31, 2014 will receive a 50% refund. (For 50% refunds, in the case of payment plans, it is based on the total cost of registration, not on refunding 50% of the funds that have been paid to-date). No refunds will be issued for “no shows” or cancellations after September 1, 2014. In the event that a registration is sold to a third party in lieu of cancellation, an additional $75 administrative fee will be incurred. No exceptions.

Right to Refuse Service

I understand that CDI reserves the right to refuse services such as membership or advertising with companies or individuals.


CDI's Advisory Board is staffed by volunteers and will not be held liable in any legal actions or claims made against the organization.
