    Singular or Plural

    Hi, struggling with this one: which is proper, Cartoonist Society, or Cartoonists Society. The former is more aesthetically pleasing, but is it correct grammar? And with the latter, does it require an apostrophe?

    Thanks,

    Garry.

    The best and clearest way to write it IMO is "The Society of Cartoonists". Otherwise you could write "The Cartoonist's Society".
