Question-and-Answer Session
From 7 to 7:30 PM a Toronto branch member will be available to meet with new EAC members, or people interested in becoming EAC members, to answer questions about the association and the profession of editing.

Business Session
Business sessions are held three times a year—in October, February, and May—to give members a formal update on branch and national business and to discuss and vote on matters of importance. The branch secretary records the minutes of the business session, and the minutes are then emailed to the membership after the meeting. If you are a member and have a matter that you would like discussed at the next business session, contact the branch chair at toronto_br_chair@editors.ca.

Information Session
At most meetings, a brief information session is held in place of a business session. Members of the executive provide updates about editors Toronto’s news, events, and activities. Members and guests are invited to ask questions and make suggestions. The updates are emailed to all members after the meeting.

Program
Social media, creating contracts, indexing, editing graphic novels, self-publishing—these are just some of the topics covered during past programs. If you would like to suggest a speaker or topic for a future program, please contact the program chair at toronto_br_program_chair@editors.ca.

Donation to Charity
Editors Toronto sets aside the funds that would otherwise have been used to purchase a thank-you gift for program presenters and donates it to a charitable organization. The charity selected for 2015 was Parkdale Project Read.
