Welcome to the June letter for Editors Victoria. We’re hoping to get lots of responses to Jackey’s call for new committee members, including her successor as president. If you’re good with numbers, please consider joining the executive as budget officer.

There’s good news for IPEd conference attendees, or those considering going, with a subsidy offer for Editors Victoria members.

It seemed time to find out a bit more about Karen Lee, CEO of IPEd – she’s our Q&A subject this month. We also note the career of one of our founders, Ruth Dixon, as the first anniversary of her death approaches.

We have updates on a couple of editing prizes and a new ‘tips and tricks’ column. Plus the regular information on meetings and training courses, social media, new members, etymology, typo and world wide web link.
