Editorial Opportunities

CM Magazine is the flagship quarterly publication of the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario and is a leading provider of information to professionals within the condominium industry for the purpose of communication between the Association and its members. It is also a forum for fair comment and discussion on all matters of general interest to the condominium community at large. CM Magazine has a printed circualtion is 9,300+ per issue and a digital circulation of approxiamtely 400 views per issue.  The audience consists of Condominium Managers, Condominium Management Companies, Industry Services & Trades Providers, and Condominium Boards. 

Article submission is not open to the general public. ACMO members in good standing may contribute articles. From time to time we will reach out to the broader condominium industry and request articles from non-members and other industry experts (e.g. government partners, educational partners, legal experts), if the subject matter requires a distinctive perspective that cannot be addressed by an individual ACMO member or company.

Guidelines:

Content should be educational and informative and relevant to the condominium management field, for example, industry news, views on aspects of the condominium management field, evolving trends, how-to articles, etc.  All content should be original to CM Magazine and not published elsewhere. 

The types of articles we look for include case studies, first-person accounts; success stories; case law; RCM profiles; Manager/Board relations, how-to articles, top tips, and best practices.

Articles that are biased or actively promote a proprietary product, company or service fall into the content marketing category. Although there may be educational aspects to this type of article, if it reads like a sales pitch, the article may be declined at the discretion of CM Magazine staff.  If you are
interested in submitting sponsored content (advertorial), contact the ad manager at ads@acmo.org.

It is the author’s responsibility to obtain approval from third parties to include personal/business information and to ensure that information is factual, accurate, and free from bias, etc. Information obtained from other sources must be cited. Plagiarized articles, whether in part or entirely copied, will not be published. The author assumes any liability and repercussions for plagiarized content.

For each issue of CM Magazine, it is not unusual for us to receive more articles than can be accommodated. Some articles are better than others, and sometimes we receive several articles that cover the same topic.  As such, to help us determine whether your proposed article aligns with our editorial standards and is appropriate for our purposes, we require authors to submit an article abstract in advance. 

Process:

  1. Submit a 150-250 word summary of your article outlining the topic you are covering.  The abstract should express your central idea(s), background, key points and conclusion as well as demonstrate your writing style.  Send to editor@acmo.org
  2. Await approval from ACMO
  3. Prepare the article draft and submit for consideration and review

Disclaimer: Articles may be edited for content, grammar and length. ACMO editorial staff reserve the right to refuse content or reschedule it for another issue.
