“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.
Remember, volunteers work their way up the ranks from jobs like being a local liaison
to the more prestigious positions such as being an Angel for our visiting editors, so offer
to help today!
