Get Involved! Join a Committee!
There is an old business maxim: "You get out what you put in." That certainly holds true at CAI-CT.
We have a variety of committees for you to serve on. Conference & Expo, Education Programs, Golf, Publications, and more are all active committees seeking your involvement. Since you are interested in making some very strong business connections, why not get involved today? Prime networking experiences await those who answer the call.
Our committee volunteers are great! BUT we need more volunteers during our events! We are looking for folks to volunteer during our events. Checking people in, setting up signs, tackling AV equipment glitches and moving supplies in and out of our venues. If you think you might be interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
NETWORKING TASK FORCES
