Join a CAA Committee

posted by Vanessa Jalet — Oct 01, 2009

CAA invites you to join one of our nine diverse, active Professional Interests, Practices, and Standards Committees. These committees address crucial issues in the fields of art and art history and help to shape CAA’s activities and goals. Committees initiate and supervise ongoing projects and recommend new programs and formal statements and guidelines to the CAA Board of Directors. Joining a committee is also an excellent way to network with other members and to provide service to the field.

Committee members serve three-year terms (2010–13), with at least one new member rotating onto a committee each year. Candidates must possess expertise appropriate to the committee’s work and be current CAA members. Members of all committees volunteer their services to CAA without compensation. CAA’s president and vice president for committees will review all candidates and make appointments prior to the 2010 Annual Conference in Chicago. All new members are introduced to their committees at their respective business meetings at the conference.

The following vacancies will be filled for terms beginning February 2010:

  • Committee on Diversity Practices: 2 members
  • Committee on Intellectual Property: 3–4 members
  • Committee on Women in the Arts: 3 members
  • Education Committee: 4 members
  • International Committee: 2 members
  • Museum Committee: 2 members
  • Professional Practices Committee: 3 members
  • Services to Artists Committee: 2 members
  • Student and Emerging Professionals Committee: 2 members

Nominations and self-nominations for committee membership should include a brief statement (no more than 150 words) describing the individual’s qualifications and experience and an abbreviated CV (no more than two pages). Please send all materials to: Vice President for Committees, c/o Vanessa Jalet, Executive Assistant, CAA, 275 Seventh Ave., 18th Floor, New York, NY 10001. Email submissions must be sent as Microsoft Word attachments. Deadline: October 16, 2009.
