Event Details

"August Execs'' is an annual gathering of the Aleph Zadik Aleph and B'nai B'rith Girls' highest-elected teen leadership (Teen Delegate) and professional staff (Staff Delegate) from across the BBYO community. During the conference, we’ll train as a united Movement on skills, strategies, and tactics as we plan for the year ahead. As core leaders, we have the privilege to focus on furthering the impact of chapter and community programming, expanding AZA & BBG's reach through membership and involvement, and taking our movement to the next level. As we begin an important year for our Movement, we’ll prepare to reach more Jewish teens through more meaningful Jewish experiences both in-person (where and when it’s safe) as well as online. Together, we will launch the agenda for the 2021-2022/5781-5782 Program Year for BBYO around the world.

Cost: $400.00 (due by 08/18/2021)
Deposit Amount: $100.00

Q&A

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? 
In addition to your clothing (including masks!) and toiletries, you'll need to bring your own twin sheets, blanket, pillowcase, and towels. Note: the Shabbat dress code is "dressy casual," please pack accordingly.

IS THIS EXCUSED FROM SCHOOL? 
Leading the Jewish people forward? You bet. If you need it, modify our School Excusal Letter Template and let us know if you need additional documentation. 

WHAT DO WE DO THERE? 
Well, it's a whole lot of... awesome. We'll spend the days in epic programming, sharing best practices, learning about the latest and greatest tools, and working together to ensure that between every rotation, planning session, and hangout, you're getting everything you need to plan for a great year. Check back on the International August Executives Conference Website soon some insider scoop and stay tuned to your emails! 

WHAT ARE THE COVID-19 POLICIES?
BBYO is committed to enforcing policy and procedures for all individuals at camp to ensure the health and safety of our communities during Summer 2021. While news and information about COVID is everchanging, we are continuously updating how our programs will be affected. BBYO is working to prepare the necessary measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our teens, staff, and families healthy. We will continuously update our protocols based on the recommended guidelines issued by the CDC, American Camp Association (ACA), as well as federal and local state governments. While it is not mandatory, we strongly encourage all teens who are attending August Execs to try to get vaccinated. All staff attending the program will be vaccinated. You can expect a first update of COVID-19 protocols for our time together before the summer starts.
