Newly elected members and officers of the CAA Board of Directors will gather at the governing body’s spring meeting on this Sunday, May 1, 2011. Charged with CAA’s long-term financial stability and strategic direction, the board sets policy regarding all aspects of the organization’s activities, including publishing, the Annual Conference, awards and fellowships, advocacy, and committee procedures.
The board welcomes four new members, who will serve from 2011 to 2015:
- Leslie Bellavance, dean of the School of Art and Design in the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in Alfred, New York
- Denise Mullen, president of the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland
- Saul Ostrow, chair of Visual Arts and Technologies at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio
- Georgia Strange, director of the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in Athens
At its February 2011 meeting, the board elected new officers—four vice presidents and a secretary—from among its members to serve one-year terms, from May 2011 to April 2012.
- Patricia McDonnell, director of the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University in Kansas, is vice president for external affairs
- Maria Ann Conelli, director of the American Folk Art Museum in New York, will serve a second term as vice president for committees
- Anne Collins Goodyear, who was vice president for publications for two years, has been named vice president for Annual Conference
- Taking over from Goodyear as vice president for publications is Randall C. Griffin, professor of art history at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas
- DeWitt Godfrey, an artist and associate professor of art and art history at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, was reelected secretary
Earlier this year, CAA named Anne-Imelda Radice, a senior consultant for the Dilenschneider Group, to the board as an appointed director. She served as director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services from 2006 to 2010 and earned a PhD in art and architectural history from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, as well as an MBA from American University in Washington, DC.
