CAA’s Professional Committees represent the constituent interests of the organization’s membership and address issues, practices, and standards in the professions represented by individual and institutional members. Committees supervise ongoing projects and may recommend to the board the initiation of programs and the adoption of formal statements and guidelines that further CAA’s goals.
These committees are composed of CAA members; ideally, one board member should serve on each. Committee size should reflect the goals and needs of each committee, though they generally have approximately 15 members.
