The CAA Board of Directors welcomes four newly elected members, who will serve from 2012 to 2016:
- Suzanne Preston Blier, Harvard University
- Stephanie D’Alessandro, Art Institute of Chicago
- Gail Feigenbaum, Getty Research Institute
- Charles A. Wright, Western Illinois University
Barbara Nesin, CAA board president, announced the election results during the Annual Members’ Business Meeting, held on Friday, February 24, at the 100th Annual Conference in Los Angeles.
The Board of Directors is charged with CAA’s long-term financial stability and strategic direction; it is also the association’s governing body. The board sets policy regarding all aspects of CAA’s activities, including publishing, the Annual Conference, awards and fellowships, advocacy, and committee procedures.
For the annual board election, CAA members vote for no more than four candidates; they also cast votes for write-in candidates (who must be CAA members). The four candidates receiving the most votes are elected to the board.
