Join a CAA Committee

Posted in opportunities by Editor on August 21, 2010

Applications due by 15 October 2010

CAA invites you to join one of its nine diverse, active Professional Interests, Practices, and Standards Committees. These committees address crucial issues in the fields of art and art history and help to shape CAA’s activities and goals. Committees initiate projects to explore or improve professional practices, advocate on matters of interest to members by means of formal statements or positions, and develop and assemble professional guidelines that, once approved by the CAA Board of Directors, become authoritative documents for all art-related disciplines. Joining a committee is also an excellent way to network with other members and to provide service to the field.

Committee members serve three-year terms (2011–14), with at least one new member rotating onto a committee each year. Candidates must possess expertise appropriate to the committee’s work and be current CAA members. Members of all committees volunteer their services to CAA without compensation. CAA’s president and vice president for committees will review all candidates in late November and make appointments in early December, prior to the 2011 Centennial Conference in New York. All new members are introduced to their committees at their respective business meetings at the conference.

The following vacancies will be filled for terms beginning February 2011:

  • Committee on Diversity Practices: 4 members
  • Committee on Intellectual Property: 1–2 members
  • Committee on Women in the Arts: 4 members
  • Education Committee: 4–5 members
  • International Committee: 5–6 members
  • Museum Committee: 3–4 members
  • Professional Practices Committee: 3–4 members
  • Services to Artists Committee: 4 members
  • Student and Emerging Professionals Committee: 4 members

Nominations and self-nominations for committee membership should include a brief statement (no more than 150 words) describing the individual’s qualifications and experience and an abbreviated CV (no more than two pages). Please send all materials to: Vice President for Committees, c/o Vanessa Jalet, Executive Assistant, CAA, 275 Seventh Ave., 18th Floor, New York, NY 10001. Materials may also be sent to vjalet@collegeart.org; email submissions must be sent as Word attachments. Deadline: October 15, 2010.
