National call for association ambassadors: A great opportunity to educate others about editing

The marketing and communications committee is developing a plan to raise the profile of the association as an authority through in-person outreach to emerging writers and editors. Our goal is to promote the editing profession and the benefits of joining Editors Canada.

Part of that plan is to have ambassadors of Editors Canada speak at libraries, writers' circles, and post-secondary institutions about what editors do and what it takes to become an editor. We plan for these presentations to start in fall 2022.

We're looking for members to become local ambassadors for our national association. We will provide a generic presentation for you to tailor to your own experience, as well as details about Editors Canada you can include. As an ambassador, you'll help to promote lasting awareness of the editing profession.

We're looking for

  • members with some work experience and a willingness to share their enthusiasm for the profession to act as ambassadors; and
  • suggested contacts at libraries, writers' circles or post-secondary institutions.

If you're able to help, please get in touch with Merel Elsinga.

Editors Canada is in need of one member from BC to sit on this year’s nominations committee.
The nominations committee is responsible for recruiting volunteers to fill vacancies on the NEC, national committee chairs, and other positions for 2022–2023. The commitment would involve virtually attending one meeting and would last from February until late April (or sooner, if we find enough volunteers). There are email templates and tracking sheets already created to make the recruiting process smoother.
Anyone interested can contact Heather Buzila at
