Take Your Membership to the Next Level: Join a CAI Committee in 2018

As a volunteer driven organization, CAI is only as strong and successful as our members make it. CAI’s volunteers are the driving force behind our success and our ability to deliver value and benefit to you, our members. 

But volunteering with CAI doesn't just help us fulfill our mission. Volunteering is a great way to network with other members, share expertise back and forth, meet new colleagues and take your membership experience to the next level. In fact, 92% of our chapter volunteers have said volunteering with the chapter has been a meaningful experience that makes them want to remain engaged with CAI. In addition to the fun and rewarding experience, manager members also earn points on the PCAM application for volunteering with the chapter. 

Our programs, publications, and membership services count on the active support and involvement of our nearly 150 volunteer committee and regional council members. Volunteering on a CAI committee can help you build long-lasting relationships that will help you maximize the value of your membership, whether you are a manager, business partner, or homeowner member.  

Here’s a brief description of our committees, what they do and when they meet. Be sure to select a committee that matches your own interests, skills and schedule.
