The Nominating Committee Seeks Members for 2011

posted by Vanessa Jalet — Dec 13, 2010

CAA invites you to help shape the future of the organization by serving on the 2011 Nominating Committee. Each year, this committee nominates and interviews potential candidates for the CAA Board of Directors and selects the final slate for the membership’s vote. The candidates for the 2011–15 election have been announced, and voting begins on Wednesday, December 15.

The current Nominating Committee will choose the new members of its own committee at its business meeting, to be held at the 2011 Annual Conference in New York in February. Once selected, all committee members must propose a minimum of five and a maximum of ten people for the board in the spring. Service on the committee also involves conducting telephone interviews with candidates during the summer and meeting by conference call in September to select the final board slate. Finally, all Nominating Committee members attend the following business meeting, at the Los Angeles conference in 2012, to select that year’s committee.

Nominations and self-nominations should include a brief statement of interest and a two-page CV. Please send all materials to: Maria Ann Conelli, Vice President for Committees, c/o CAA Executive Assistant, CAA, 275 Seventh Ave., 18th Floor, New York, NY 10001. Materials may also be sent as Microsoft Word attachments to Vanessa Jalet. Deadline: December 30, 2010.
