In 2013 the international level of SCBWI re-organize some regional boundaries to minimize the geographical expanses of regions and to make it easier for members to access events in their regions. Mississippi is now partnered with the Louisiana region. Southern Breeze now consists of Alabama, Georgia, and the panhandle of Florida. To ease this transition, those who were members in Mississippi before this change have the option to choose whether to have their memberships remain with Southern Breeze or to transition to the Louisiana/Mississippi Region. Members may be registered in a different location from where they live. They simply need to contact GeeCee Addison in the main office and let her know in which region they want to be aligned. Of course, membership in SCBWI is international. You are always welcome to attend events in ANY region. We welcome you to the Louisiana/Mississippi Region.
