Why can't I just sign up on the SCBWI site?

Due to unexpected changes in the global SCBWI site, we are currently unable to accept registrations through the site since there is no way to collect payment. We are working on this with SCBWI HQ and expect to have a solution soon.

Meanwhile, registration via Google Form is fast and easy. We hope you'll join us despite this hiccup.
