SCBWI...Sighhh.......My reply which should end the chain

Dear Dorian,
As you read this, forget about Kickstarter. I wasn't suggesting SCBWI be involved in Kickstater. The two have nothing to do with one another.
I provided the Kickstarter link because in this one place,  I was able to provide a comprehensive overview of many of the aspects of self-publishing.  Many hear self-publishing and think, "I'll just run to Amazon". There is or can be so much more and I was hoping SCBWI might see an opportunity to reach out with sessions and classes of interest to the huge majority of writers and want to be's who will never be published.
Yes your seminars do teach writing - but the four years that I was a member much of them were about how and what to write to be published - They were taught in many cases by and geared to what agents and publishers were looking for.
I am proposing sessions geared to writers like me who would rather self publish than give up.
In closing, thank you for taking the time to read this. I have enjoyed your seminars.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!
