Inaugurated in 2019, the Council of Readers serves a crucial role in the Annual Conference review process. The Council of Readers is group of 50 to 75 CAA members from Professional Committees, Affiliated Societies, and general membership overseen by the Annual Conference Chair. 

The Council is tasked with reading proposals submitted by CAA members with a focus on each Reader’s specialty as much as possible. Readers serve for three years and provide their time, knowledge, and expertise to help shape the conference. Review of proposals is overseen by the ACC and occurs in May. Each member of the Council of Readers reviews no more than 60 proposals. The Annual Conference Chair shapes the conference content based on the reviews given by the Council. The application to serve on the council may be found at this link. Applications are reviewed in November each year, more information at this link. You may email  with any questions.
