CAA Annual Conference Advance Registration Closes

The 106th CAA Annual Conference in Los Angeles is coming up quickly.

We wanted to let you know that there are less than two weeks before Advance Registration closes. That means the window for the best Annual Conference registration price is closing also. We want this conference in LA to be the biggest, the most exciting, and the liveliest yet, so tell your colleagues and friends to register. Please pass this message onto them. Send it to your department. Send it to your students. We are advancing the field when we fill the Los Angeles Convention Center with thousands of visual arts professionals.
