For a long time now we've been informing you about the process of transition to a direct membership model with our national body, the Institute of Professional Editors Limited (IPEd). That step has now been taken.
On 1 July 2016, the Society of Editors (Qld) became a branch of IPEd and changed its name to Editors Queensland. Editors who were members of the Society of Editors (Qld) have had their membership automatically transferred to IPEd.
The new Editors Queensland will support editors in Queensland and continue to run activities for IPEd members such as regular meetings, networking events and professional development programs. Editors Queensland will continue to host a branch website, produce a local newsletter (Offpress) and maintain social media accounts.
