Get Ready to Launch Your Year

August Execs is BBYO’s annual gathering of the highest-elected teen leadership (Teen Delegates) from every community across our Movement. During the conference, Alephs and BBGs come together to train on skills and strategies to finalize plans for the upcoming year. The conference will be filled with unique workshops, awesome programs, special events, and it will feature an International Business meeting.

Conference Information

Welcome to AZA & BBG International August Executives Conference! 

This year's conference will take place from Wednesday, August 17 - Sunday, August 21. As BBYO’s core leadership, we have the privilege of focusing on how to lead our communities, strengthen the impact of chapter and community programming, celebrate our chapters, and ensure that as many Jewish teens as possible have an opportunity to experience BBYO (and our partners) in more than 725 communities worldwide. As the world begins to look to a post pandemic era, it is an important moment to explore new ideas to launch in our communities and build relationships with leaders from around the world. 

If you have questions, here are some quick ways to get in touch:
