May General Meeting

Posted on: 06 May 2015

What will our society look like under direct membership of IPEd?

General meeting

Monday 18 May, 7.30 pm at the SA Writers' Centre


In November 2013, members voted on how best to further the work of our national body, the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd). Our society – like most other societies around Australia – voted for direct membership of IPEd.

Since then volunteers on a national working party and teams of other volunteers have been gathering data and working out the details of the structure of a direct membership model and preparing a plan for transitioning from individual state societies to branches of a single united national body.

On 29 April 2015, members were emailed eight green papers describing the proposed structure of the direct membership model.

Members are invited to come together for our next general meeting on Monday 18 May to discuss the proposals and provide feedback before the structure is put to a vote in August this year. The proposed structure is a significant change and will have important effects on members. I urge you to read the green papers and make it a priority to attend this meeting.

Email rsvp@editors-sa.org.au by Sunday 17 May if you would like to join us for dinner before the meeting at 6 pm at Cafe Michael 2, 204 Rundle Street, Adelaide. Dinner is at member's own expense.
