For those of you who couldn't make the AGM in August, here we have the reports on the year's activities from Editors Victoria President Jackey Coyle and from each of the executive officers.

One of Jackey's duties at the AGM was awarding Lan Wang an honorary life membership of Editors Victoria, and you can read why Lan deserves the honour in the excerpt from Liz Steele's speech.

Although quite a few committee members were stepping down, a veritable horde of new recruits volunteered to keep everything running. We look forward to the next committee meeting, where roles will be allocated.

And, in other news, we have another report from the very sociable Gippsland Editors, a great Q&A with teacher-turned-editor Sandra Duncanson, new courses, new members and Dear Ed. And early bird registration for Redact closes today, 1 September.

Have a great month.
