ANNUAL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
The Annual Conference Committee, working with the CAA Programs Department, selects the sessions and shapes the program of the Annual Conference. The committee ensures that the program reflects CAA’s goals for the conference, namely, to make it 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.
COUNCIL OF READERS
The Annual Conference Committee has appointed over 50 CAA members to the Council of Readers to serve a crucial role in the review process. The Council is tasked with reading proposals submitted by CAA members with a focus on each Reader’s specialty. Readers provide their time, knowledge, and expertise to help shape the conference. Review of proposals is overseen by the Committee and occurs in May. Each member of the Council of Readers reviews no more than 60 proposals.
