PAA is an affiliate society of the College Art Association (CAA), the primary national professional organization in the United States whose members are committed to excellence in the practice, teaching, and research of and about art, art history, and related disciplines. As a benefit of this affiliation, PAA hosts a session of papers at the annual CAA conference.

As an affiliated society, PAA may sponsor one proposal for a 2½ hour regular session at the Annual Conference. The Annual Conference Committee will consider a PAA-sponsored session proposal, along with the other submissions it receives, on the basis of merit.
