Committees

CAI-NJ Committees Take an Active Role in the

Operations of our Chapter

Each year, in the fall, CAI-NJ members in good standing are welcome to apply to serve on a committee for the following calendar year. Three of CAI-NJ’s committees are dedicated exclusively to Homeowner Leaders, Managers and Business Partners. There are several other committees that require the input of all membership groups to meet their goals.

With the guidance and support of our CAI-NJ Staff, our committees are instrumental in the success and growth of the chapter. We are said to have the most active and engaged committee members out of all of the CAI chapters. 

Committees are a wonderful way to meet other members, have your company take an active role in the chapter and see how our chapter makes things happen from the inside out. If you’re a new member and interested in getting involved, keep a look out this fall for committee sign-ups for the 2021 year. Registration typically goes out in August-September with an early October deadline for applications.

We can’t thank our current committee members enough for their hard work, dedication and service to the chapter!
