Conventions are an exclusive BBYO Member Experience, which means your teen must be a BBYO member in order to register. Membership is a one-time payment of $249, and lasts all through high school! BBYO members have access to incredible programming at the chapter, regional, and international level, and your teen will be joining a global brotherhood and sisterhood with over 100 years of history. This is the perfect first convention to attend as a part of our Region as you will get to participate in the tradition of being regionally inducted with your siblings! Join us for this amazing weekend.

What are the meals like? What if I have a dietary restriction? 

All BBYO meals are Kosher Style with vegetarian and vegan options. We ask for allergy information and food needs on the online medical form, and we appreciate you sharing information as soon as possible so that we can accommodate specific food needs and limitations. All BBYO conventions are peanut and tree nut-free.

What is BBYO’s discipline policy? 

As a reminder, when you registered for membership you signed BBYO’s Code of Conduct, which outlines our policies for substance abuse, property damage, and behavior guidelines with the full understanding of our behavioral expectations as a member of BBYO. Rules and guidelines will be made clear to all participants upon their arrival at convention opening. Should one of our teens choose to act outside of our Code of Conduct, the incident will be addressed by the appropriate staff members. We have a zero-tolerance approach to any violation of the Code of Conduct and any discipline matter that comes to the attention of staff. If you are (or your teen is) dismissed from convention for disciplinary reasons or Code of Conduct violations, BBYO staff will arrange for travel home immediately, at your family’s expense and without a refund.
