Gearing Up for August Execs 2011!
Posted on 08/11/2011 @ 11:08 AM
It’s the 87th and 88th Boards here at the National 4H Youth Conference Center in Washington, D.C. We are currently preparing for the August Executive Conference! We’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Regional and Council Godolim and Nsiot as we prepare for an exciting weekend ahead! We’ve been working endlessly to ensure this weekend is both extremely fun and informative. Our business meetings are intense, our programming is superb, and our new and revamped campaigns are going to bring our Orders to the next level! We look forward to seeing all the teens so we can get started on a great year!
Tonight, we will be hosting the families of the International Board members as well as Estee Portnoy, Chairwoman of BBYO's International Board of Directors, at the International Installation Ceremony where the 87th Grand Board of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and the 67th International Board of the B'nai B'rith Girls will officially take office. Matt will be here with us to deliver some welcoming remarks, and will spend time with the teens throughout the weekend as they navigate sessions and enjoy a little qualitative, network-building downtime. The programming and workshops planned for this weekend are intended to unify the International Execs Body while also offer tangible initiatives and 'easy to make' next steps that can be customized and implemented through local programs. We'll be posting the business discussed at August Execs throughout the weekend on this blog.
Our teen leaders will celebrate the unveiling of BBYO's new brand, launch the countdown to International Convention in Atlanta, GA (February 2012) and embrace new social media guidelines to ensure that they are great representatives all of the time – both online and offline. We'll also be celebrating Shabbat together as a community joined by song leader Eric Hunker and we'll delve into some text study that looks at the democratic values within Judaism framed with the backdrop of the unprecedented social justice campaigns alive in the streets of Israel this month.
Respectively Submitted, The 87th Grand Board of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and the 67th Board of the B’nai B’rith Girls
