Membership renewal

If you were a member of Society of Editors (WA) at 14 June 2016, your membership has been transferred to IPEd. If you had an entry in the Register of editors, your entry will also be transferred to IPEd and will be maintained on the EditorsWA website for an interim period.

Membership renewals for members of IPEd in Western Australia fall due on 1 February 2017. Details about IPEd membership categories can be found on the transition information page of the IPEd website.

The new IPEd membership system gives you access to the online member portal. As a member you can visit the IPEd member portal, which is linked to the IPEd website, to:

  • review and update your details
  • renew or apply to change your subscription
  • book and pay for events
  • subscribe to the Editors Directory (ED), if eligible, and enter and maintain your directory entry
  • pay outstanding subscriptions and invoices
  • access members-only information.

Enquiries about membership may be addressed to the IPEd Membership Officer. General enquiries about Editors WA branch and IPEd may be directed in the first instance to the WA IPEd councillor, Stephen White.

Thank you for your help and patience as we move to the new, direct membership structure with the Institute of Professional Editors – IPEd!
