CONNECTIONS are geographically-based groups for the purpose of networking for our SCBWI members in areas away from the Portland metro area where most of our events are held. Each area has one or more representatives. These representatives, under the authority of the Co-RAs, may plan local events in specific subsets of our region. Want your area covered? Find out what volunteering entails by contacting the Co-RAs.
