Monthly Meetings

Monthly Membership Meetings via Zoom

MONTHLY MEETINGS:  CANSCAIP's Monthly Membership Meetings are a key benefit for our Members and Friends across Canada. These meetings are excellent opportunities to learn from and connect with Canada's children's writing, illustrating and performing community as well as industry professionals.

CANSCAIP may invite prospective new members to attend a meeting. This one-time invitation may be extended by contacting office@canscaip.org. 

SPEAKERS: Guest speakers are invited monthly to share their expertise and knowledge in their fields, and regularly include authors, illustrators, performers, editors, art directors, and other industry professionals. 

MEMBER & FRIEND ANNOUNCEMENTS AT MEETINGS: Have a new book? Nominated for an award? Tour or book launch ahead? News about the book community? Get added to the agenda to share your news.  Please aim to make your announcement a maximum of 2 minutes or less due to time constraints.
