Our Brother Alephs and Sister B’nai B’rith Girls,
As it is every year, BBG Founders’ Day is April 22nd and AZA Founders’ Day (effectively, BBYO’s birthday) is May 3rd. Celebration will be exactly how Sam and Anita would have wanted it: simultaneous, worldwide, in the chapters and through whatever is best for each individual community. Our goal is to see every chapter mark Founders’ Day in some way. To help this goal become a reality, we offer a list of program prompts that your chapter or community can utilize or incorporate into existing programs already on the calendar.
Additionally, consider Founders' Day as the culminating point of your chapters' Spring recruitment efforts! Between now and Founders' Day, make the extra push to recruit new members to your chapter and council/region. Imagine how proud Sam and Anita would be if we were to exceed our membership goals while celebrating Founders' Day! Need help or advice for member recruitment? If so, send us an email at AZABBG@BBYO.org.
As you scroll down this page, you can download the AZA and BBG Founders' Day 2015 Resource Guide, learn about different movement moments associated with Founders' Day 2015 and follow Founders' Day on social media. This is a time for our Order to mobilize together to celebrate our history, our current successes and our future. If you would like additional consultation on programming, reach out to a member of the International Board or e-mail AZABBG@BBYO.org. We wish you a joyous Founders’ Day 2015!
Fraternally and respectfully submitted, we remain,
The 90th Grand Board of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and 70th International Board of the B'nai B'rith Girls

How is your chapter celebrating Founders' Day?
What is your chapter doing to celebrate AZA and BBG Founders' Day 2015? Our goal is for every chapter across the Order to commemorate this historic moment for AZA and BBG by having a program either on AZA or BBG Founders' Day or some time in between the two dates.
