ABOUT BBYO International convention (IC)

Over Presidentsʼ Day Weekend in February 2017, thousands of the Jewish community’s top teen leaders, educators, professionals and philanthropists from across the world will come together in Dallas, Texas for one of the largest Jewish communal events of the year. Delegates will hear from and meet inspiring speakers, deepen leadership skills, serve the local community, celebrate Shabbat and learn together, have access to exclusive music performances and do their part to further a strong Jewish future.

In addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, IC delegates will join in the democratic process of furthering BBYO’s agenda and elect AZA and BBG’s next International Board. Opportunities to be a part of IC’s Host Region, engage with the local community, reunite with old friends and build lifelong global friendships are constants of every IC, and are sure to be major highlights of IC 2017!
