The Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS) offers an annual fall meeting in the region during Columbus Day weekend. Besides papers and panels on many classical topics, these meetings are notable for their sessions on new directions in teaching and research and for their discussions and workshops on professional issues such as the state of Classics in other countries, preparation of professional abstracts, etc. All members receive the association's journal, Classical World, which publishes articles and reviews for the scholarly teacher and the teaching scholar. Among the journal's unique features are regular surveys of textbooks and audio-visual materials in Classics.
The E. Adelaide Hahn Rome/Athens Scholarship Endowment Fund offers substantial support to a CAAS member for summer study abroad, and the Jerry Clack Lectureship Fund has been set up to bring a distinguished speaker to the CAAS annual meetings. CAAS also provides grants for individuals and for public projects promoting the Classics. Tax-deductible contributions to support these very worthwhile enterprises can easily be made while renewing membership via a clickable button on the Philosophy Documentation Center's CAAS membership page (will open in a new window), or by check made out to CAAS, with the relevant fund written on the memo line, sent to the Treasurer:
