You know I'm involved in SCBWI's Canada East chapter, right? (Full disclosure: actually I'm the Regional Advisor.) I'm really looking forward to this spring's conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This year a volunteer stepped forward and offered to be the conference coordinator for our spring event. I'd met her at our fall retreat and things went from there. Super huge thanks to writer Jackie Pynaert for stepping forward to spearhead this huge undertaking!
