Beginning with the September 2008 issue, CAA News will once again be printed and mailed to all individual and institutional members six times a year.
In July 2007, the newsletter transformed from printed publication to a PDF document distributed online primarily to balance the previous year’s budget. The decision, made by the CAA Board of Directors, was not a permanent one.
Going from 32–48 pages to 16–24 pages per issue, the new CAA News will focus largely on organizational business, providing updates on the Annual Conference; listing individual- and institutional-member achievements; publishing calls for participation for CAA committees, editorial boards, awards committees; and more.
At the same time, CAA plans to beef up its website, with more online-only content. Former newsletter sections such as the Advocacy Update and the Obituaries, for example, will be exclusive to the web as part of a larger initiative to revamp the CAA website. We want www.collegeart.org to become an indispensable resource for artists and scholars, curators and educators, and critics and other arts professionals throughout the year.
CAA News will continue to appear as a PDF document on the website; past issues go back to March 2002. Posted at the beginning of the month of publication, the newsletter can be read immediately—before the printed publication arrives in your mailbox.
If you wish to receive CAA News in electronic format only, please contact CAA Member Services.
