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 the community.

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. Upcoming themes are below, however, we welcome articles across all themes and topics that benefit community associations and businesses.

If you are interested in submitting an article for possible inclusion in Community Trends®, please contact Brooke Stoppiello-Nevins at 609-588-0030 or
