Membership Committee


The Membership Committee works to promote membership in CAI. The committee also focuses on the importance of membership retention by directly reaching out and making connections with our members. The Membership Committee familiarizes itself with the membership programs of CAI National and CAI-NJ, as well as recommending ways and means to enhance our own membership programs to include, if appropriate, incentive programs. They also host New Member Meet-Ups to welcome those new to the industry and assist with getting them more involved within the organization,
