On July 1, 2022, CAA initiates a new membership structure which addresses the needs of visual arts professionals. Based on the feedback of members, CAA is prioritizing access to scholarship, professional development, and opportunities to connect with fellow scholars and practitioners. 

The new structure is designed to be digital first, allowing CAA to leverage several platforms to increase accessibility and deliver a customized experience for each member. This custom experience—myCAA—creates opportunities for members to engage on their terms. 

Some of the most significant changes include: 

  • The elimination of a tiered membership structure, and the creation of a single, all-access membership 
  • A monthly installment option for membership dues 
  • The creation of additional programs and features, which can be added a la carte by members. 
  • The option to add print journal subscriptions
