2014–15 Nominating Committee Seeks Members

posted by Vanessa Jalet — Dec 04, 2013

CAA invites you to help shape the future of the organization by serving on the 2014–15 Nominating Committee. Each year, this committee nominates and interviews potential candidates for the CAA Board of Directors and selects the final slate for the membership’s vote. The candidates for the 2014–18 board election were announced on November 26, 2013.

The Board of Directors and the Nominating Committee strive to find the best candidates that represent the broad subdisciplines and practitioners represented in the membership. The current Nominating Committee will choose the new members of its own committee at its business meeting, to be held at the 2014 Annual Conference in Chicago in February. Once selected, all committee members must propose, in the spring, a minimum of five and a maximum of ten people for the board. Service on the committee also involves conducting telephone interviews with candidates during the summer and meeting in fall 2014 to select the final board slate. Finally, all Nominating Committee members attend their business meeting, at the New York conference in 2015, to select the next committee.

Nominations and self-nominations should include a brief statement of interest and a 2–3 page CV. Please email a statement and your CV as Word attachments to the attention of DeWitt Godfrey, CAA vice president for committees, care of Vanessa Jalet, CAA executive liaison. Deadline: January 3, 2014.
