posted by CAA — Jan 27, 2020
CAA invites nominations and self-nominations for two members-at-large to serve on the Publications Committee for a three-year term, from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2023.
The Publications Committee is a consultative body that meets three times a year: in the spring, in the fall, and again at the CAA Annual Conference in February. Through its chair, the CAA vice president for publications, the committee advises the CAA Publications staff and the CAA Board of Directors on publications projects and meets with chairs of the editorial boards of The Art Bulletin, Art Journal/AJO, and caa.reviews. 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.
Committee members pay their travel and lodging expenses to attend the meeting at the Annual Conference. Meetings in the spring and fall are held by teleconference. Members of all committees volunteer their services to CAA without compensation.
We encourage applications from individuals who have served as members of CAA editorial boards in the past, and/or have considerable writing, editorial, or publishing experience. Candidates must be current CAA members and may 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. The Publications Committee is committed to upholding CAA’s values statement on diversity and inclusion.
Please address in your application how your experience would contribute to the Publications Committee. 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 email a letter of interest, a CV, and your contact information to managing editor Joan Strasbaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Publications Committee” in the subject line.
