CAA News Today

CAA’s nine Professional Interests, Practices, and Standards Committees welcome their newly appointed members, who will serve three-year terms (2012–15). In addition, three new chairs will take over committee leadership, with one current chair appointed for an additional year. New committee members and chairs will begin their terms next month at the 100th Annual Conference, to be held February 22–25, 2012, in Los Angeles. 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 December and make appointments that take effect the following February.
