AZA & BBG Member Experiences at #AZABBGIC2017

Over President’s Day Weekend, more than 5,000 of the Jewish community’s top teen leaders, educators, professionals, and philanthropists from around the world will convene together in Dallas. Between inspiring speakers, celebrating Shabbat, musical performances and immersing yourself in the local community, here are the ways that you, the Alephs and B’nai B’rith Girls of the International Order, can be involved in International Convention.

 


International convention chapter programming showcase

applicationS DUE NOVEMBER 16

The International Convention Chapter Programming Showcase is back! Every chapter across the globe has the opportunity to submit an outstanding program to showcase for Alephs and BBGs from across the International Order at #AZABBGIC2017. The top 20 applicants will be selected to run their program at IC, gain valuable feedback from their peers through program evaluation and have the opportunity to win the Programming Excellence Award. We are looking for chapter programs that exemplify the best of AZA and BBG. This showcase will display a multitude of chapter and program types that will inspire every Aleph and BBG to create innovative and unique programming in their home chapters.

In an effort to continue to invest in excellent programming in our chapters, each program chosen for the showcase will be awarded $100 toward future chapter programming. Three programs will be selected for additional awards based on the program evaluations at International Convention in February.

  • Bronze Programming Excellence Award - additional $50 toward future chapter programming
  • Silver Programming Excellence Award - additional $150 toward future chapter programming
  • Gold Programming Excellence Award - additional $300 toward future chapter programming

It is through AZA and BBG International Awards that we hope to congratulate and honor Alephs and BBG for their accomplishments. If you have questions, email azabbg@bbyo.org.
