About Community Trends

CAI-NJ_Dec.2015cvr-168x215Community Trends® is the monthly magazine published by the New Jersey chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI-NJ) and is distributed to its members. Each month, this publication provides members of CAI with updates on current legislation, monthly messages from the Chapter President and Executive Director, informative articles written by professionals and service providers and a large forum for advertising. Covering an array of topics, Community Trends® gives members the tools needed to keep informed on community association issues.

Write for Community Trends®

CAI-NJ and the Editorial Committee are always looking for new articles to publish in Community Trends®.

One of CAI’s major strengths is the willingness of its volunteer members to contribute their time and share their knowledge and experience. Nowhere is that willingness more important or more noticeable than in the area of CAI publications.

Our own chapter magazine is an example of this sharing by our members. Everything that is printed, despite the diversity of the subject matter, has the same goal: to share with other CAI members information that will help them better serve their communities.

All articles are reviewed by the Editorial Committee. We recommend that articles contain no less than 500 words, but no more than 1,500 words.  Articles should be written in third person, eliminating the use of ‘I’, ‘we’, ‘me’, ‘my’, and ‘our.’  CAI retains the right to edit articles to conform to content space requirements.

If you are interested in submitting an article for possible inclusion in Community Trends®, please contact Jaclyn Olszewski at (609) 588-0030 or Jaclyn@cainj.org
