International Membership

If you are living abroad, then you can join the CDI as an international member to access all our member benefits in a digital format

To support your life-long learning and professional development, international members can access a wealth of online research, training and resources on the CDI website. The majority of our skills and training sessions are now taking place as webinars, and so international members will have access to a wide-ranging events programme.
