Special General Meeting - IPEd Transition Plan

Posted on: 29 September 2015

Opportunity for full members to vote on the IPEd Transition Plan

Monday 26 October, 6.00–7.00 pm

SA Writers Centre, 187 Rundle Street, Adelaide
(This SGM precedes the book club meeting starting at 7.30 pm)

The Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) is conducting a ballot of individual members of the seven Australian societies of editors to determine whether IPEd becomes a direct, centrally administered organisation of individuals, or whether the status quo of seven editors’ societies with individual constitutions and administrations is maintained.

At this Special General Meeting, full members of the Society of Editors (SA) will determine whether they support the transition of the Society to full direct membership of IPEd.

This will be the only opportunity for members to cast their in-person vote in the abovementioned IPEd ballot. However, votes may also be cast online via Survey Monkey or via postal vote.  

Only full members may vote. (This means that associate members cannot.)

Members will receive full instructions in an information pack that will be emailed to members prior to the opening of voting on 4 October.

Please register your attendance via Eventzilla on our website at http://www.editors-sa.org.au/

Wine and nibbles will be served after the SGM. Please email rsvp@editors-sa.org.au if you have specific dietary requirements.

Members are free to attend either or both the SGM and Book Club meeting.
