Apply for CAA Committee Service!

posted by April 24, 2024

Join one of CAA’s twelve Professional Committees, the Annual Conference Committee, or the Publications Committee as an at-large member! Each committee works from a charge established by the Board of Directors. For many CAA members, committee service fosters professional relationships, community, and facilitates impactful contributions to pressing issues in the visual arts and higher education.   

Important Committee Service Information:  

  • Committee members serve a three-year term. Service for this committee cycle begins in February 2025 at the CAA 113th Annual Conference and concludes in February 2028 at the 116th Annual Conference.
  • All applications are reviewed by current committee members as well as CAA leadership. 
  • Appointments will be announced by November 1, 2024. New members will be introduced to their committees during their respective business meetings at the 113th Annual Conference in New York City (February 12–15, 2025). 
  • If appointed, applicants are expected to attend committee meetings, participate actively in the work of the committee, and contribute expertise to defining the current and future work of the committee. 
  • Appointees must be current CAA members before the start of their committee service, but do not need to be CAA members to apply.
  • All committee members volunteer their service without compensation.  

Visit our website using the links below to review the mission of each committee as well as the current roster of committee leadership and members.


The Annual Conference Committee is responsible for shaping the program of the Annual Conference, ensuring that the program reflects CAA’s goals: to make the conference an effective place for intellectual, aesthetic, and professional learning and exchange, to reflect the diverse interests of the membership, and to provide opportunities for participation that are fair, equal, and balanced.


CAA’s twelve Professional Committees represent the constituent interests of the organization by addressing standards, practices, and guidelines in the professions of our individual and institutional members.
