Why join Editors SA in 2020?

Posted on: 30 January 2020

There are many great reasons to join Editors SA in 2020. The South Australian branch of IPEd is a vibrant, active organisation offering a wide range of professional development and networking opportunities, including eligibility for discounted registration fees for:
  • face-to-face workshops and member meetings at our city base and other locations
  • online training via webinars
  • professional development provided by other state branches
  • IPEd's national editors conference (the next one is in Hobart 2021)
  • the national accreditation exam.

You choose the membership category that best fits your specific circumstances (Student, Associate, Professional or Corporate). Professional Members are able to advertise their services nationally as well as by state, via the Editors Directory.

Other benefits include access to training events held by our international partners, such as the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) in the UK and Editors Canada. Local, national and international job advertisements and industry news comes to Editors SA members via regular email communication, and ...the word (our SA newsletter) is published quarterly.

Perhaps you'd like to share your skills or strengthen your own practice by taking part in a two-way learning experience as either a mentor or a mentee? Membership of Editors SA offers access to the National Mentoring Program.

As an Editors SA member, you'll also have access to:
  • editing prizes and scholarship opportunities
  • member-only resources, including book lists, articles about editing and member-only discounts on numerous products and services, including the Macquarie Dictionary, Books+Publishing / Weekly Book Newsletter, PerfectIt, the Australian Manual of Scientific Style
  • discounted rates for public liability insurance and/or professional indemnity insurance.

Last, but definitely not least, you'll benefit not only from IPEd's advocacy in relation to issues such as rates of pay and employment conditions, but also from making your contribution to raising the profile of editing as a profession. We look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon.
