So how did we go from staggeringly clueless to astoundingly successful? When I took on the role of Regional Advisor in 1998, I had a vision for how to grow our region. Yet, I don’t think I quite dared to dream it like it is today. I am so happy to have been part of the creation of this wonderful regional chapter that has helped so many achieve their publishing dreams, improve their craft and make new connections. Importantly, though, I couldn’t have done it without the many, many dedicated volunteers, who stepped up with all kinds of skills and time and enthusiasm, but most of all a ‘can-do’ attitude. It is their ideas and vibrant energy coupled with all of our members’ individual contributions that give SCBWI-BI the synergy that it has today.

It is a joy to celebrate the success of our members and our region. Who knows what will be around the corner in the future? Could YOU hold the key to the next big idea?
