What happened to CJCI Magazine?

CJCI Magazine was published during 2010. It was determined going into 2011 that an adequate operating budget needed to be in place to continue publishing the magazine. Fundraising efforts during 2011 did not result in enough support to move into 2012 resuming publication of the magazine.

Why do I need a picture to join NING social networking site?

A picture is the only requirement that we make of our members. This is to help create community and allow our members to get to know one another. You are welcome to upload an image of your choosing including a head shot, jewelry, or your business logo.*

*CJCI reserves the right to remove any image deemed inappropriate.

Will member names be published online?
