CAA Seeks Publications Committee Member
posted by admin — Feb 28, 2017
CAA invites nominations and self-nominations for one member-at-large to serve on the Publications Committee for a three-year term, July 1, 2017–June 30, 2020.
The Publications Committee is a consultative body that meets three times a year. Through its chair, the CAA vice president for publications, the committee advises the CAA Publications Department staff and the CAA Board of Directors on publications projects and meets with chairs of the editorial boards of The Art Bulletin, Art Journal, and caa.reviews three times each year. The committee chooses candidates to serve on CAA’s book-grant juries; sponsors a practicum session at the Annual Conference; and, with the CAA vice president for publications, serves as liaison to the board, membership, editorial boards, book-grant juries, and other CAA committees.
Each year the committee meets twice in the spring and fall and once at the CAA Annual Conference in February. Members pay their travel and lodging expenses to attend the meeting at the conference. Meetings in the spring and fall are currently held by teleconference. Members of all committees volunteer their services to CAA without compensation.
Candidates must be current CAA members and should not serve concurrently on other CAA committees or editorial boards. Applicants may not be individuals who have served as members of a CAA editorial board within the past five years. Nominators should ascertain their nominee’s willingness to serve before submitting a name; self-nominations are also welcome. Appointments are made by the CAA president in consultation with the CAA vice president for publications.
Please send a letter of interest, a CV, and your contact information to: Vice President for Publications, c/o Deidre Thompson, College Art Association, 50 Broadway, 21st Floor, New York, NY 10004. Materials may also be via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: April 21, 2017.
