• Editors' Association of Canada
The EAC offers seminars and lectures on every aspect of editing every kind of text. I've worked as invigilator during the EAC's Beta testing of its certification exam, proofed entries to the 2003 and 2004 Directory of Editors, and served on the committee tasked with redesigning the EAC website.
• Canadian Association of Journalists
CAJ keeps us in touch, regardless of the size and scope of the publications we work on.
• Glebe Authors' Group
GAG meets monthly so its members can shore up each other's flagging confidence. Each of us is working on The Great Canadian Novel / The Great Canadian Book of Poetry / The Great Canadian... you get the picture.
TVO offers Ontarians the highest quality of commercial-free
programming – what's not to like?
• Amnesty International
I can't imagine not being a member of AI. The global community
looks to AI's human rights defenders for strength and support,
and we deliver – some of us in small ways (that's me) and some
on a grand scale. Every bit helps.
