New Association of American Editorial Cartoonists President Jack Ohman has issued an opening statement for his two year term on progress and objectives.
Partnerships as far as conventions, with Cartoon Columbus Crossroads and the Association of Canadian Cartoonists in the past, will continue to be neccessary:
I noted at the last convention that we will begin exploratory talks with Jason Chatfield, the president of the National Cartoonists Society, about entering into some sort of alliance. I will report on these conversations after we talk …
In my view, it is important for us to retain our AAEC identity in any future arrangements, and an AAEC/NCS alliance is probably going to look more like a joint convention effort more than anything else.
Here is the full AAEC statement for public consumption (business matters are for members only).
One thought on “AAEC: State of the Organization”
Not only the state of the AAEC but political cartooning as a whole. Truly sad…..
