What Our Customers Say

"My CEDS Certification and local chapter involvement has been pivotal to my career. When I earned my CEDS in 2014, I gained instant credibility in the eDiscovery community. My continuing involvement and leadership in the ACEDS Jacksonville Chapter has provided unmatched education and networking opportunities which have had a direct and positive impact on my career. Finally, through chapter leadership I have gained colleagues across the globe in other chapter leaders and centralized ACEDS leadership."
