At times, it can be tricky to know how to correctly address office holders such as members of parliament, ambassadors and judges in formal and informal correspondence to them. These communications can include letters and emails and, of course, face-to-face communication.

To help you avoid errors, we have compiled a summary of the correct forms of address – including salutations – for common communications. We hope you find it to be a useful resource.

For example, if you are addressing an envelope for a letter to a state premier, you should structure the salutation as follows:

The Hon. [First name] [Surname], MP
Premier of [State]
[address]

The use of the term ‘Honourable’ or ‘the Hon.’ varies between federal and state office holders, so please check our guidance for the correct usage. Our Editorial Style Guide explains how to use honorifics (Dr, Sir, Professor, Associate Professor etc) in your marketing and communications material.

What do you think of our summary? Have we missed anything? If you have any questions or feedback, please contact me.

You’ll find that by working on your content before worrying about the visual effect of a homepage, you’ll be more likely to have a better website. Get the content right first, and you’ll be able to build a better structure around it.

Back in December, Harbinder Kaur told you about the University’s decision to switch to uncoated stock for the sake of ‘green printing’. But going green wasn’t the only reason we made the switch.

Printing on uncoated stock is new to the University and the effect that it has on images and publications is getting mixed responses.

This has as much to do with the images that are being used as the paper itself. Remember: quality in, quality out.
