WELCOME TO international AUGUST EXECUTIVES CONFERENCE
"August Execs" is an annual late-summer gathering of the Aleph Zadik Aleph's 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 train on skills, strategies and tactics for the year ahead as a united Movement. As core leaders, we're challenged to focus on planning how to further the depth of chapter and community programming, expand AZA & BBG's reach through membership and involvement, and how to most effectively make the world a better place. Together, we will launch the agenda for the 2018-2019 Program Year for AZA, BBG and BBYO.
August Execs will be held at Capital Camps Retreat Center in Waynesboro, PA, USA from Thursday, August 9th - Sunday, August 12th, 2018. Teen Delegates will be staying onsite at camp and most Staff Delegates will be staying at a local hotel. Check out the Spirit and Packing Guide!
If needed, you can modify our School Excusal Letter Template.
