On 1 July 2016, the transition from state society to direct, individual membership of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) took effect. A new branch of IPEd in WA—Editors WA—was constituted at the same time. Editors who were members of the Society of Editors (WA) at 14 June 2016 have had their membership transferred to be managed by IPEd.
The new Editors WA will support editors in Western Australia and continue to run activities for IPEd members: this includes regular meetings, networking events and professional development programs. Editors WA will continue for some time to host a branch website (http://editorswa.com), produce the Bookworm newsletter and maintain social media accounts (https://www.facebook.com/SocietyofEditorsWA/; https://twitter.com/editorswa).
Questions specifically about membership may be emailed to the IPEd Membership Officer: email@example.com.
Once login usernames and passwords have been distributed, membership information may be viewed and updated via the new My Membership portal (https:ipedmembers.memnet.com.au/Login.aspx). This is also one avenue for booking meetings and events you would like to attend.
Over the next few days and weeks, you will notice changes to this website as we rebrand and realign the content to the new membership structure. For further information about changes to the way we, as individual members, will interact with IPEd, and with our state branch, please email WA IPEd councillor, Stephen White: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to your direct membership of the Institute of Professional Editors – IPEd!
