“I could do that!”
Perhaps you’ve seen a member working during a conference and thought, “I could do that.” Well, you’re right! Southern Breeze has become a vibrant SCBWI region thanks to our energetic volunteers. Like all regions, even our leaders are volunteers. It takes many people to help Southern Breeze continue to offer top-notch conferences, contests, and multiple opportunities to boost the careers of our members. If you’re interested in helping, great! Volunteering your talents, efforts and time, is a wonderful way to “give back” to the organization. Below are just a few possibilities.
