The busy fall is just getting started at CAA. Last week, CAA launched CAA Connect, our new digital discussion and resource library platform that will further discussion on the visual arts and scholarship for our members.

This week, we open registration for the 2017 Annual Conference in New York, February 15 through 18, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown.

Early and online registration is available through December 19, 2016.

With the opening of registration we also launch myCAA, a new campaign aimed at making CAA the best organization for its members. MyCAA is designed to encourage participation in and ownership of CAA. More on that in the coming months, but contributing to the myCAA discussion community on CAA Connect is a great start! There is also an Annual Conference discussion community that will help us build a better conference with your member feedback.

For the 2017 Annual Conference we kept registration rates the same as the 2016 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. and we managed to secure the lowest hotel rates for New York City since 2011. This is all part of our effort to create an Annual Conference attendees will return to year after year. Single session tickets are also now at the lowest rate since 2001.

The 2017 Annual Conference will have more sessions than ever, an astounding 270-plus, due to the changes we made to the conference structure last year. We are thrilled to welcome two leading scholars as our Convocation Speaker and our Distinguished Scholar for 2017.

Convocation Keynote Speaker
Mary Miller, Sterling Professor of History of Art, and recently appointed the senior director of the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University

Distinguished Scholar
