These hard-working men and women work tirelessly day and night to make sure the SCBWI organization runs smoothly. From offering regional newsletters with helpful articles on the craft of writing, to hosting parties, to lots and lots of xeroxing, emailing, and arranging events... these brave Regional Advisors keep SCBWI moving!
As Aaron Hartzler, SCBWI Director of Communications and Creative Director likes to say:
"That's how we roll..."
These RAs hail from all over the country and from as far away as Spain, Russia, and Australia!
Some inspirational words uttered at this year's RA Word Parade included "Success," "Newbie," "Chocolate - because you can never have enough chocolate," "Kick-awesome" (inspired by American Idol), "Embrace," "Percolating," and "Horizon."
LA regional advisor Claudia Harrington wanted to say "klutz" because her arm is in a cast, but instead, she decided her word would be "Bravery." Brava, Claudia!
Here's some live video of the RA Word Parade!
On behalf of all the members of SCBWI, Thank you, awesome SCBWI Regional Advisors for all that you do for us!
