Last year at the Annual Conference in Los Angeles, CAA offered Idea Exchange, a series of roundtable talks on a variety of topics led by leaders in the field. The talks are less formal than a session at the conference and are meant to address topics for discussion and open dialogue.

Idea Exchange will be offered again this year at the 2019 CAA Annual Conference and the submission portal is now open. CAA is looking for Idea Exchange topic leaders and ideas for talks.
