SCBWI Board Members

“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!



Please e-mail Claudia or Sharon, we’d love to hear from you
