Join the society

You can apply now to join the Canberra Society of Editors. All you need is an interest in editing.

Simply complete and return an application form. The society offers four levels of membership:

The membership year starts on 1 July and memberships can be renewed between 1 June and 31 July. If you apply to join between January and December, you need pay only half the annual membership fee. We will tell you how much to pay when we process your application.

* Quoted fees are to be ratified by vote on 30 April 2014. They assume payment by EFT or direct deposit. Payment by cheque attracts a higher fee.

Full (professional) membership

Full membership is open to anyone currently engaged professionally in editing or publishing, or who has had such experience in the past. Professional members are eligible for inclusion in the freelance register, may vote or hold office in the society and receive our newsletter published regularly throughout the year. Applications are assessed by the society’s management committee.

Associate and student memberships

Associate and student memberships are open to anyone interested in the activities of the society. Student membership is available only to full time students. Associate and student members receive our newsletter and can be elected to the committee, but may not vote or hold office. Associate and student members are not eligible for inclusion in the freelance register.
