2012 Annual Conference Website Goes Live

posted by CAA — Aug 05, 2011

The website for the 100th Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration, taking place February 22–25, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, is now live. Get a taste of conference highlights and read about what you receive with registration, such as access to all program sessions and admission to the Book and Trade Fair.

You may also begin thinking about your travel plans: American Airlines, Amtrak, and Avis provide promotional codes for special reduced rates, and CAA offers three travel stipends for attendees, including twenty awards through the newly established CAA International Travel Grant Program, generously funded by the Getty Foundation. Companies and organizations interested in exhibiting in the Book and Trade Fair will find application materials, booth descriptions, and preliminary schedules.

Between now and February, CAA will update the website regularly, with new information on the Awards for Distinction presentation, special receptions, postconference tours, and more. Later this month, CAA will publish the names of the three conference hotels and list room rates and reservation instructions. The titles of program sessions, events in ARTspace, biographies of the Convocation speaker and Distinguished Scholar, participants in the Annual Artists’ Interviews, and topics of professional-development workshops will come later this fall.

Online registration will open in early October 2011, with the lowest rates available for members and nonmembers alike between then and early December.
