Changes to the ODE renewal system

The renewal date for the Online Directory of Editors (ODE), the official advertising directory of association members for use by clients, employers and colleagues, is coming!

All listings in the ODE are up for renewal on June 30, 2009. The fee for a listing in the ODE remains unchanged at $75 plus applicable taxes per year, but we're making a few changes to the payment process, we think for the better. After July 1, 2009, ODE renewals will occur at the same time as membership renewals, allowing you to renew everything at one time.

Renew your ODE listing when you renew your membership

Starting July 1, 2009, ODE listings will be renewable on the same date as your membership renewal.

We will send detailed instructions by email on May 1, 2009. Instructions will include your membership renewal date.

Fee schedule

If you are already listed in the ODE, you will be able to pay to list in the ODE from July 1, 2009, to your membership renewal date. A pro-rated fee of $6.25 plus applicable taxes per month based on your membership renewal date will be used to calculate the number of months for your listing and the amount payable.

Example: 
Let's say your membership renewal date is November 2009. By July 1, you need to pay $31.25 plus applicable taxes to list in the ODE, which is five months (July 2009 to November 2009) at the pro-rated rate of $6.25 plus applicable taxes per month.

When you renew your membership in November 2009, you will pay for your membership renewal plus the annual ODE fee.

Don't lose your ODE listing

All public access to ODE listings that have not been paid for by July 1, 2009, will be turned off on July 6, 2009.

Update your ODE listing

The fine print

  • The national office will begin accepting payment for renewed ODE listings on May 1, 2009. You will be able to pay online or download a form to pay by mail or fax.
  • Members will receive instructions by email on May 1. Instructions will include your membership renewal date.
  • All public access to ODE listings that have not been paid for by July 1, 2009, will be turned off on July 6, 2009.
  • Only voting and qualifying members in good standing and honorary life members may list in the directory. Student and emeritus members may not list in the directory (Rules and Regulations No. 3: Membership Categories in the Association).
  • The cost of an ODE listing is tax-deductible as a business expense.
  • Like membership fees, ODE listing fees are non-refundable.
 

People are talking about…the directory

"Thanks to my listing I'm in negotiations for a $30,000-a-year project, starting this summer. I'm very pleased! Worth the price of membership!"
Carol Anderson, EAC member

"On behalf of The Writers' Union of Canada I am delighted to enthusiastically endorse the online job tools provided by the Editors' Association of Canada/Association canadienne des réviseurs. Two days before the Christmas break I contacted EAC and identified that I urgently needed editing services. I was amazed at what I found [on the Online Directory of Editors]. I must say that as I browsed around the directory I found the information impressive. Within a day I had exactly what I needed, thanks to EAC's online job tools. The editor I hired provided prompt and professional editing services within my schedule and I was, and am, delighted."
Deborah A. Windsor, Executive Director
The Writers' Union of Canada

"I've had more inquiries resulting in work than ever before, from the U.S. and Canada, since the revamping of the ODE!"
Andrea Lemieux, EAC member
