Spring Has Sprung

Spring is here, and boy, didn't it let us know! Arriving bang in sync with the calendar on 1 September, it saw Victorians shading their eyes as they looked up at the sky, wondering what all that blue stuff was, and why it was so warm and bright.

And then the winds started. Typical Melbourne.

But spring is all about re-birth, re-growth and the new. And so it's my pleasure to introduce to you the new Editors Victoria committee!

Voted in at the recent AGM, the new committee features several familiar names continuing in their existing roles (or trying out new ones) as well as a host of fresh faces who have all valiantly volunteered their time and expertise to help make Editors Victoria the best support and resource for Victorian editors that it possibly can be!

The new Editors Victoria committee:


President — Trischa Mann

Administration  Sabita Naheswaran

You can read our interview with new president Trischa Mann in this issue of the newsletter, and we hope you'll come along to some of our upcoming events and training sessions over the next 12 months, where you'll be able to meet more of your new committee.

All your committee members are dedicated professional editors, just like you, with day jobs and demanding clients. And they have all chosen to volunteer their time for Editors Victoria, for you. So ask them questions and expect the best from them, but don't forget to help them out and give your new committee your support as they work to make your society everything you want it to be!
