What does CAA need from Board Members?
Positions are for a three-year term starting September 2022 following the AGM. A second 3-year term is taken by most Directors. There is an in-person planning meeting once per year at the CAA Conference and virtual meetings throughout the year. All Board Members are unpaid volunteers and are expected to participate in Board meetings and project activities of the Board and its committees.

CAA represents a broad range of geographic locations, Audiology specialties and employment types. To ensure that this broad mix is maintained we are looking for individuals to represent skillsets we will be missing next year due to retirement of some board terms. This year, preference will be given to Audiologists with strong interest and specialty in Paediatrics. Priority will also be given to private practice clinicians who work in or own private practice clinics.
