Serve on CAA
Interested in serving on the CAA? Each spring, a call for applications is posted to fill anticipated member vacancies on the CAA for the following year. All CAA positions—academic, practitioner, and public—are for 4-year terms beginning January 1. The CAA also recruits during that time candidates to apply to serve on its Nominating Committee, which is a 1-year term.
CAA Member Elections
The CAA Nominating Committee annually presents a slate of candidates to fill anticipated academic and practitioner member vacancies for election by CAA-accredited programs. Program directors of CAA-accredited programs are notified by email in late August when the election opens, including a link to candidate statements to share with all faculty before the program’s vote is cast. Voting closes on September 15, unless otherwise notified.
The CAA conducts face-to-face meetings 3 times a year.
- February 21-24, 2018 (ASHA National Office, Rockville, MD)
- July 18-21, 2018 (ASHA National Office, Rockville, MD)
- November 14, 2018 (Boston, MA)
Observe a CAA Meeting
CAA meetings, except for executive sessions as designated by the CAA, are open to individuals as observers. Individuals who are interested in observing a meeting must submit a request through email to the Council Chair at least 30 days prior to one of its regularly scheduled meetings.
