The following list identifies the volunteer members that serve as site visitors for the CAA. The pool comprises both academics and practitioners; audiologists and speech-language pathologists. Site visit teams are comprised of three or four people, including both academics and practitioners.

CAA also conducts site visits to programs that have applied for candidacy; individuals that have had additional training to serve as a candidacy site visitor are noted with an asterisk (*).
