Branch and National Activities

At our recent Editors Victoria executive committee meeting, we reviewed the conference committee’s recommendations for a professional conference organiser (PCO) for the 2019 IPEd conference in Melbourne. A PCO was chosen so we are now in a position to draw up a contract, and proceed to pin down dates and venues. We also discussed using some of the retained Editors Victoria funds to produce a history of the society (and now branch of IPEd) while key people involved in the early days are still able to contribute their knowledge. We’ll give our members the first opportunity to put in a quote for this project once we’ve settled the scope and investigated our existing resources.

The new IPEd Standing Committee on Academic Editing had its first meeting, by teleconference, on 2 November. There has been lots of interest from members keen to be involved, and the committee is beginning by establishing its terms of reference.
