Director's Note

Hello and welcome to the January edition of our monthly eNews, filled with exciting updates from across Toronto, Vaughan and Richmond Hill.

We can't wait for the amazing international and local events coming up this spring. BBYO International Convention (IC) 2015 is in just a few weeks, and we will have 37 Toronto-area teens representing us in Atlanta!

Locally, we're looking forward to the BBYO Super Bowl Party (Grades 8-12), Winter Regional Executive Conference (for Chapter and Regional Officers), our Chapter Soccer Tournament (Grades 8-12) and our New Members Overnight (Grades 8-10). Plus, we've got many volunteer opportunities throughout February and some amazing chapter programs in the works!

As always, check out the Upcoming Dates section below for all the awesome events and programs coming up soon!

Here's to a great spring semester!
