Every year over Presidents’ Day Weekend, BBYO holds its AZA BBG International Convention. At this convention, Alephs and BBGs elect a new International Executive Board. The “I-Board” helps chart the organization’s vision for the coming year, and provides leadership and support to teen leaders in local communities throughout the BBYO system. They work to strengthen regions and chapters by enhancing the Judaic, social, educational, and community service programming throughout the system.
Boards are elected to the same positions for both AZA and BBG, with male and female counterparts working together to fulfill their responsibilities.
