CAA Appoints New Committee Members

posted by Christopher Howard — Jan 30, 2014

CAA’s nine Professional Interests, Practices, and Standards Committees welcome their newly appointed members, who will serve three-year terms (2014–17). In addition, three new chairs will take over committee leadership. New committee members and chairs will begin their terms at the 2014 Annual Conference in Chicago. CAA warmly thanks all outgoing committee members for their years of service to the organization.

A call for nominations for these committees appears annually from July to September in CAA News and on the CAA website. CAA’s president, vice president for committees, and executive director review all nominations in November and make appointments that take effect the following February. CAA’s vice president for committees is an ex officio member of all nine groups.
