AZA BBG IC 2013 is well on the way to a smooth start! With international delegates and staff members settled into the hotel on the waterfront, our BBYO community has set its roots soundly. The theme this year is one that was imagined by our teens themselves—“From The Roots We Build.”
This event has been months in the making. Our teen Executive Board members from across the Order who arrived Wednesday are just the tip of the participant iceberg. As the teens eagerly emerged from the buses Wednesday afternoon, the energy began to build. Friends reuniting from summer programs greeted each other with open arms and smiles so genuine the whole room began to brighten up.
Tonight’s opening ceremonies will welcome a 1,500 teens with show stopping performances and surprises we can’t wait to tweet about. Regions will bring their spirit A-game throughout the weekend to win the coveted spirit awards, all the while building and expanding our international network of brother Alephs and sister BBGs.
Throughout the weekend participants will have the freedom to take part in events and activities that both interest, engage and challenge them. With multiple Shabbat service options available, an exceptional hands-on Day of Service and elections for the international AZA and BBG boards, this weekend is jam packed with opportunity at every corner.
We invite you to participate in AZA BBG IC 2013 wherever you may be located! Follow us on Twitter at @BBYOInsider and the hashtag #AZABGGIC2013 or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BBYOInsider and here on our blog as well!
