AIG is seeking an editor to manage the publication of its quarterly member newsletter, AIG News.
The current editor, Louis Hissink, is retiring after many years of valued service to the Institute in this role. Louis’s last edition will be AIG News 118, to be published in November this year. AIG News is read by more than 3,000 members throughout Australia and internationally.
AIG News is moving to being published as an electronic publication from the beginning of 2015. This transition creates an opportunity for the new editor to prepare a full colour publication and use new media in delivering information to AIG members. The newsletter is prepared in collaboration with the Institute’s Publications Committee which is responsible for reviewing content and assists the editor in proofing each issue prior to publication. The editor is responsible for sourcing and selecting content to be included in each issue from AIG members, State Branch committees and other sources.
An honorarium is associated with the Editor’s role.
