Central Region East, or CRE, is a multi-state region. With chapters from in New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, this ever-growing region draws people in from a variety of areas. Unlike many other regions, CRE has several conventions throughout the year. This is accomplished through tremendous support on the part of local parents and JCC's. Our current Convention schedule starts off with RLTI, a convention for training new member. After that comes Tournies, where all the chapters compete with one another. After that we have IT!, the first convention that 8th graders can attend. Following that we have WOW Weekend, a unique convention meant to celebrate the best in programming. And finally, we have Spring Fling, where the region elects the new regional board and the seniors give lives. It is a jam-packed schedule. One of the most exciting things about our region is it's growth. In the past ten years, we have consistently exceeded membership recruitment goals and expectations. Most recently, our chapter in King of Prussia absorbed the main line area from Philly Region, providing that chapter with an exciting new growth opportunity. One thing which has always defined our region is the sense of connection, both as individuals chapters and as a region.
