Our Priorities

AZA and BBG have had incredible membership momentum for over a decade. We're ready to take it to the next level.

Charter New Chapters

The fastest and most meaningful way to grow our Movement is through new chapters. We'll support Alephs and BBGs through the process as we start new chapters around the world.

Elevate CLTC

Chapter Leadership Training Conference (CLTC) is our foundation for AZA and BBG training. We'll strengthen the curriculum and work to ensure every community is represented.

Build the New Member Experience

We can't wait to support you in building out big-little programs and using our newly released (!) New Member Curriculum to create strong new member classes every semester/season.

Grow Our Membership

We'll welcome home more than 23,400 members from the United States and Canada, as well as thousands more worldwide—all by June 2019. Never too many, never too strong.
