THE TEAM BEHIND IC

INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION STEERING

International Convention Steering Team 🎉


Overview of Areas

  • Jewish Enrichment: Made of creative thinkers with a strong Judaic background (or excitement to learn), knowledge on BBYO’s approach to pluralism and ritual, and have experience with innovative programming or planning for a BBYO Shabbat. These roles will work closely with BBYO’s Directors of Jewish Enrichment, song leaders, and the International Sh’lichim.

  • Creative: Help shape, create, and vision some of the inner workings and niche experiences for different parts of the IC experience. From managing the operations of the IC Steering Team or helping to select our big talent names, the opportunities are endless.

  • Global Ambassadors: Before IC kicks off, all delegates from outside the US and Canada unite for a week of learning, touring, and fun. Global Ambassadors Week (GAW) Coordinators will work in partnership with the International Mazkirim and a future steering committee to build this experience.

  • Experience: The Experience team will bring our lounges to life, surprise the Order with insane pop-ups and interactive experiences, and provide unique experiences for special groups of members. The Movement's most creative, innovative, and energized teens will also help us bring BBYO Boulevard to life.

  • Program: Teen-led programming is at the heart of BBYO International Convention. This incredible team will work to build, curate, and facilitate Oneg and Separates experiences and support special grade programming. This team will act as a role model to inspire and provide real examples to bring home to your communities.

  • Music: At IC, delegates have the opportunity to perform on the main stage and in the Music Studio. The IC Band unites incredible singers and musicians from around the world.

Overview of Roles

  • BBYO International Convention Deputies: One Aleph and one BBG will be chosen to help lead the IC Steering Team and bring IC 2024 to life. These teens will work closely with the International S’ganim and Leadership Team. They should expect this to be a significant part of their leadership responsibilities for the year. Deputies should be passionate, articulate, organized, creative, and work well when juggling lots of projects. Deputies will be seen as extensions of and the voice for the International S’ganim on IC projects.

  • Administrative Assistants (Admins): Work closely with the IC Deputies and IC Leadership Team to manage and lead their respective teams. Admins should be organized, creative, have an eye for detail, and work well when juggling lots of projects. Admins will be expected to host team calls, elevate and provide feedback on experiences, and dedicate 4-6 hours weekly to developing the IC experience as February approaches. Admins should have experience coaching, leading, and managing others, and a strong ability to adapt. The responsibilities of the admin team will increase greatly during convention.

  • Captains: Work closely with their admins and professional partners to support and manage the planning and execution of their respective team. Captains should be organized, creative, and have an eye for detail. Captains will be expected to provide feedback on IC experiences, partner with their admins and committees, and spend 2-4 hours weekly on developing the IC experience.

  • Committees: Work closely with their Admins and/or Captains to develop the IC experience within their specific committee. Committee members should be ready to write and execute innovative programs and services, bring energy and excitement to the IC experience, and dedicate 1-3 hours weekly on developing IC programming.

Steering Pacing

Below you’ll find a general flow of serving on IC Steering, but the timing looks different for each team. 

  • You’ll find out your role on the IC Steering Team before IC Launch Night on September 28.
  • For the first few weeks after you are selected, you should expect to be consulting on ideas from time to time and receiving information to help you get ready to take on your role. This will not be a very busy time in your role.
  • Expect in mid-October/November (depending on your team) for your hours to start picking up and moving into the building, shaping, and deep dive of the IC building experience. 
  • In December, expect to transition into “go time” and a consistent amount of coordination and work in your roles. 
  • At the end of January and early February through convention, expect your busiest times with the largest amount of hours dedicated to your team. 


IC 2024 Leadership Team Early Arrival

Please note that the IC Deputies and some, but not all of the Administrative Assistants and Captains are asked to arrive at IC 2024 early for Advance Week to help set up, build, and prepare convention. This may include shared projects that go beyond what your traditional “scope” might be in your role, such as setting up the IC Environment, preparing nametags, coordinating speaker and guest hosting, and more. For those Alephs and BBGs selected to serve on the IC 2024 Leadership Team, more information will be provided in advance of IC Launch Night.

These individuals work closely with the IC Planning Team to ensure that guests are hosted and managed to the best of BBYO's hospitality standards. You’re perfect for this role if you have good public speaking and hosting skills and are comfortable in fast-paced and professional environments.

This role scales up in time investment at IC and in the weeks leading up to it.
