Individual editors, or those interested in the profession, can become members of their local society, which, in turn, is a member of IPEd. Individual editors cannot directly join IPEd; however, by joining their local society editors contribute indirectly to the efforts of IPEd as all the societies work together under the IPEd umbrella.
All of the Australian societies of editors have the following broad aims:
- promoting editors and editing
- fostering excellence in professional editing standards
- providing training and professional development to editors
- allowing editors to exchange ideas and disseminate information
- acting as a link between their members and organisations or individuals seeking editorial help.
The following societies are the founding members of IPEd:
