CAA Unveils New Membership Program: More Benefits, New Options
posted by Nia Page — Apr 07, 2014
Today CAA unveils a newly restructured membership program for individuals. The new membership categories are based on benefits rather than on income, making the various tiers more equitable and offering members more choices. CAA arrived at the new levels—which include, for the first time, a discounted membership for part-time faculty—after a thorough analysis of member feedback, benchmarking against other organizations, and conducting market research. You can watch a video about the new membership program and find a list of benefits associated with each new category at www.collegeart.org/membership/individual.
All individual members will continue to receive an outstanding package of benefits, including print subscriptions to CAA’s acclaimed publications, access to the Online Career Center, discounted registration for the Annual Conference, and invaluable networking and mentoring opportunities. New benefits and options include:
- Online access to The Art Bulletin and Art Journal
- Additional online access to publications in the Taylor & Francis collection
- Access to JPASS—JSTOR’s individual access plan with a catalogue of over 1,500 journals—at a 50 percent discount
- A new, discounted membership category designed to meet the needs of part-time faculty
CAA members make up a vital network that supports the highest standards in scholarship, theory, criticism, education, and practice in the visual arts. Membership dues help CAA to fund important research, carry out advocacy initiatives, publish its scholarly journals, administrate professional-development programs, and host the world’s best-attended visual-arts conference.
