The Classical Association of the Atlantic States is seeking applications for the position of Program Committee Coordinator. The Program Coordinator will serve a three-year term, beginning immediately after the Fall 2018 CAAS Annual Meeting and running through the end of the Fall 2021 Annual Meeting. The position carries a stipend, and may be renewed for more than one term.
The responsibilities of the Program Committee Coordinator include:
- selecting and overseeing a diversely constituted Committee of twenty-five CAAS
members, from all six civic jurisdictions in the CAAS region;
- organizing a program to be presented at the Annual Meeting, based on the
Committee’s anonymous assessments of submissions of abstracts both of
individual papers and proposals for panels and workshops;
- assigning Program Committee members to serve as presiders at paper sessions, so that in this capacity they work with individuals in their sessions whose abstracts
and proposals have been accepted by sharing edited versions of program
committee assessments to provide constructive feedback, and they facilitate the
transformation of abstracts into 15-minute presentations for oral delivery which
are accessible to all attendees at the CAAS meeting.
The Program Committee Coordinator works closely with both the Executive Director and Webmaster in planning and publicizing the Annual Meeting. Most of the Program Coordinator’s work takes place between the time of the CAAS Board Meeting in April and the Fall Annual Meeting in October. The Program Coordinator also serves as a member of the CAAS Executive, Nominations, Awards, and Clack Lectureship Committees ex officio, and oversees the application and selection procedures for travel subsidy awards.
A record of previous participation in developing and maintaining CAAS programs and of
service on the CAAS Program Committee will be accorded special weight.
