The CDI Board agreed the CDI 2025 strategy and it was launched at the installation of the new CDI President on 10th December 2021. The strategy clarifies our purpose, establishes a clear direction and enables us to prioritise future investment. 

The Strategy was created with input from members, the CDI team, the Professional Standards Committee, associates and stakeholders. It builds on our successes to date and enables us to sustainably increase benefits for members and further champion career development.

 Strategy overview

The strategy sets out our intention to increase the positive impact we have for our members and in championing the sector. We will achieve this through four areas of focus; broadening membership, strengthening standards, influencing change and working for a fair future. These pillars are underpinned by driving new revenues streams to have the funds to invest, developing the skills and capability for a digitally enabled future and reviewing our governance to ensure it remains robust and transparent as we grow.

As part of the CDI 2025 Strategy we will be investing in our digital capability over the coming years to improve the membership experience, support new services and enable us to raise the profile of the profession with a wider audience.
