Be A Professional Joiner

logo-scbwiThe beginning of a New Year also seems like a great time to consider joining a professional organization. A quick Google search will show there are many different professional organizations out there looking for new members for artists, crafters, illustrators, licensing artists, and this list is just a tip of the iceberg. These groups can be local, regional, state, national, or international.

The benefits of becoming a member of a professional organization are numerous, including networking with peers, a wealth of resources and information, professional publications, staying on trend, education and classes, and speaking events. Like any career, staying relevant and connected to like-minded professionals is crucial.

So on that note, I became a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I have kept an eye on this organization for awhile now, and in keeping with my goal of organizing and ultimately growing my business this 2016, there wasn’t a better time to join.
