The results of the 3rd Society of Editors (WA) – IPEd transition ballot have been tallied. Members of the Society have voted by a substantial margin to approve the resolution that the Society shall wind up.
|YES, I agree to the special resolution
|NO, I reject the special resolution
This is a very pleasing turn out. More details can be viewed in surveysummary_all-results_final_11232016 derived directly from an export of data out of SurveyMonkey.
Once winding up of the Society is effected, this leaves Editors WA – as the branch of IPEd succeeding the Society – to represent, advocate for and support the interests of editors in Western Australia.
I would like to personally thank everyone who has participated in the process, from its beginnings in 2013–14 up to now, and into the future. Despite many uncertainties, doubts, fears, glitches and a multitude of considerations to be digested, it’s heartening to see such a large majority of members embracing the change.
It has not been easy and it has never been the only option; Canberra Society of Editors remains an independent organisation in that territory. Our task now is to make the most of the opportunities the national membership structure offers editors in Western Australia. Please support your branch.
