Every February, thousands of AZA and BBG teen leaders alongside BBYO alumni, advisors, professional staff and top Jewish philanthropists from around the world convene at AZA BBG International Convention (IC). This event is BBYO's largest annual gathering of Jewish teens working to strengthen the Jewish future and among the Jewish community’s largest annual events.
Members of BBYO’s high school fraternity – the Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and sorority – the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) – have the unique opportunity to take part in amazing programming, renowned speakers, citywide service learning opportunities and an inspiring Shabbat like most have never seen before. In addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, IC delegates will join in the democratic process of furthering BBYO’s agenda and elect AZA and BBG’s next international teen leadership board. Opportunities to experience IC’s host city, engage with the local community, reunite with old friends and build lifelong global friendships are constants of every IC.
This year’s IC, themed Welcome Home will be held at the Hyatt Regency Downtown on February 13th – 17th, 2014 and be extra special as our Movement celebrates 70 years of the B’nai B’rith Girls and 90 years of the Aleph Zadik Aleph. You don’t want to miss the start of BBYO’s 90th anniversary celebrations!
AZA BBG IC 2014 will feature a dynamic, multifaceted experience unlike any we’ve offered ever before. With events taking place across the Dallas metropolitan area beginning February 6th, and IC hosting eight conferences and summits within the umbrella Convention program, this year’s program will be elevate the scope of what IC has been in big ways.
In addition to International Convention, members, alumni and friends of BBYO will take part in:
IC is a gathering built by members from across the Order for members around the world. Every member – every Jewish teen – involved with BBYO: leaders, chapter members, new members, freshmen sophomores, juniors and seniors – are encouraged to attend. It’s an inspiring experience that brings every attendee face to face with the power of our Movement and leadership positions or prior international participation aren’t necessary at all. We’re expecting a record number of Alephs and BBG’s from at least 15 countries, and we’re hoping to welcome representation from every chapter on the planet!
IC costs $850 and includes everything a delegate needs (hotel, meals, give-a-ways, access to all events, concert tickets, airport and ground transportation and more) except the flight. Scholarship is available and interested families should apply as soon as they make their deposit. We encourage you to register early as we anticipate Convention will close quickly and demand will result in a wait-list.
