Dakotas-SCBWI Spring Conference - April 10, 2010

Hey, Everybody!

I know... It has been a long time since I've posted.  I've been recovering from the last conference...and gearing up for the next one! 

Here's the scoop:  The Dakotas-SCBWI Spring Conference is scheduled for Saturday, April 10, 2010, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Details will be coming soon. 

Meanwhile, some big changes are underway.  As many of you know, I will be stepping down from my position as Regional Advisor.  However, you will be in good hands with the new Regional Advisor and an Assistant Regional Advisor.

More later.  Stay warm!
