The Nominating Committee is charged with nominating and interviewing candidates to the CAA Board of Directors and selecting the final slate of candidates. In making its selection, the Nominating Committee takes under advisement the desire for a balanced representation of the CAA membership. (see Art. VIII, Sect. 4 of the CAA By-laws).

The Nominating Committee is chaired by the vice president for committees, who does not vote. The committee includes three board members in their last two years of service who are not elected officers, the board chooses these three at its February meeting. The committee also includes four at-large members who are selected by the previous year’s committee, one of these at-large members returns from past year’s committee.

CAA publishes a call for nominations and self-nominations for Nominating Committee service in CAA News and on the website in late fall of every year.
