Branch Meetings

Editors Victoria holds regular branch meetings featuring guest speakers on a variety of topics from across the editing and publishing industries. 

Branch meetings are usually held on a weekday evening at a venue in the Melbourne CBD or at a suburban venue. Non-members are welcome. The admission fee includes food (generally a buffet, or canapes/finger food with vegetarian options) and a complimentary glass of beer, wine, sparkling wine or soft drink (cash bar also available).

Members of Editors Victoria and affiliate organisations receive discounts on the general admission price. Editors Victoria members must log in to their member portal before booking to receive their discount. Our affiliate organisations are Writers Victoria, Australian Society for Technical Communication (ASTC), Australian and New Zealand Society of Indexers (ANZSI) and Australian Publishers Association (APA).

Events are advertised in our monthly newsletter and on our Facebook page. See details and book current events on the IPEd events page (filter for events held by the Victorian branch).

Advance registration and online payment are required for attendance.

We do not accept cash or cheque payment at the door. All bookings and cancellations must be submitted by 48 hours before the event.

Our Annual Branch Meeting, usually held mid-year, is free of charge for all Editors Victoria members. Non-members are welcome to attend but are charged an admission fee.

Reports from previous meetings appear in the Editors Victoria newsletter and collected on our Past events page. If you have any suggestions or requests for future topics or guest speakers, please contact the Events Officer.
