Annual Convention

Annual Convention October 3-6

The AAEC and Association of Canadian Cartoonists will be teaming up with the Université du Québec à Montréal for a 3-day celebration political cartoonists, October 3-6, 2024.

Online registration coming soon!

The Time of The Gathering is Here

This week, political cartoonists from across the country (and Canada too!) will gather in the Bay Area for their annual confab. For those going, the final schedule is here.

Our guy on the ground — Parliamentarian extraordinaire Scott Burns — is not only the AAEC’s advisor on all things Roberts Rules of Order, he also spends a lot of time in San Francisco on a regular basis. He’s applied his knowledge to an incredibly handy 11-page guide to SF for everyone coming to town for this year’s cartoonist convention.

You can download a PDF of it here: The AAEC_ACC Guide to SF

(Scott has also volunteered a great deal of time to help plan this years gathering, so maybe buy him a drink when you see him later this week!)

See y’all in San Francisco, October 5-8!
