Each month the branch offers members the opportunity for networking and professional development.
The majority of a meeting is devoted to a single topic related to editing and may take the form of a training session, guest lecture or group discussion; however, there is always time to share a cup of tea or coffee, or a glass of wine, and chat with the other attendees.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month, from February to December. Cost of attendance is $5 per member and $10 per non-member. Meetings start at 6.30 pm. Most meetings are held at The Warehouse Café, 221 Onslow Road, Shenton Park WA 6008. Click here to see a map.

In 2015 our cafe society events will replace three of our Tuesday night networking meetings this year. This will be a great way for new members (and all) to get to know each other and share stories and ideas. Each event will be held at a different time and location to suit the broad spread of our membership.
See details of the next meeting here. We look forward to seeing you there.
