Monthly Regional Meetings

Monthly Regional Meetings
Second Sunday of the month starting August 14

4:00 to 5:00 p.m. (Central) / 3:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Mountain)

Our monthly meetings will provide an opportunity for SCBWI Nebraska members to learn about upcoming events, ask questions of the regional team, and learn from a presenter.

These take place virtually, so that all of us—no matter where we live—can be part of the community. We scheduled these on a Sunday afternoon to accommodate parents of young children who cannot attend evening events. All regional meetings will be recorded and made available to the Nebraska membership until the next scheduled meeting begins.

How they work:

(1) Log in to your SCBWI account.

(2) Go to the Monthly Meeting Access page and click the link just before the meeting time (or enter the meeting ID and passcode) and you’re good to go. You MUST be logged in to access that page. This ensures that only members can join the meetings.

If you haven’t used Zoom before, you will want to watch this video on downloading Zoom (you need an app to join the meetings) and this one on setting up your audio and video. You do NOT need to create a Zoom account to join our Shop Talk or any other Zoom event.
