How to Vote

Log into your CAA account with your CAA User ID# and password. Then click the Vote Now image at the center of your screen to begin the process. If you are already logged in, click the “Home” link at left, and then the “Vote Now” image.

You may vote for up to four candidates, including one write-in candidate if you wish. Ballots that indicate more than four candidates will be void. The election ends at 5:00 PM (EST) on Wednesday, February 3, 2016.

Send your Proxy

CAA encourages all members to attend its Annual Business Meeting at the 2016 Annual Conference in Washington, DC. If you cannot attend, kindly check the box appointing a proxy. By doing so, you appoint the CAA board officers named thereon — DeWitt Godfrey, John J. Richardson, Charles A. Wright, Suzanne Blier, Gail Feigenbaum, and Doralynn Pines — to vote, in their discretion, on such matters as may properly come before such a meeting.

A quorum of 100 members is required to hold the Annual Business Meeting; therefore CAA requests your proxy to insure the Annual Business Meeting can take place. Please submit your proxy by 5:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 3, 2016.  Thank you!
