Chapter Membership

If you would like to join our chapter, click here and add the SD Chapter (#057, $20 extra) to the national APIC membership application. We host a monthly lunch meeting with a continuing education presentation, a chapter business discussion, a certification in infection control study session, and a great way to network with local Infection Preventionists and other industry partners.

Attending our monthly meetings does not require chapter or APIC membership. All are welcome to join!


The CIC® credential identifies healthcare professionals who have shown mastery in knowledge of infection prevention and control by sitting for and passing the certification exam. The CIC® shows a commitment to best practices in infection prevention and control and improved patient care and signals to your employer and colleagues that you are committed to your professional growth.
