89th Annual Conference, Chicago
February 28-March 3, 2001
The 89th Annual Conference in Chicago will be the first to implement the changes recommended to the Board of Directors by the Annual Conference Committee. CAA has revised the concept of theme-inspired sessions, and of theme chairs, in favor of a more inclusive approach to the program. Regional chairs will work in consultation with the committee to develop four new session categories. It is expected that themes and subthemes will emerge and that the committee will identify them from accepted session proposals.
The regional chairs for the Conference are Henry Maguire, Eunice Dauterman Maguire, Buzz Spector, and Anne Wilson. E. Bruce Robertson, the Vice President for the Annual Conference, will chair the Annual Conference Committee.
