A few weeks ago, both chapters of BBYO Argentina, Ligdol #5044 and SHAbados #5045, had their board elections. Ligdol voted for its fourth board, while SHAbados voted for its third board. But this year wasn´t the same as others.
As we all know, the circumstances we are living in limit us in almost every aspect of our current lives, and one of those is attending chapter meetings and events physically. However, BBYO can get through anything, right? And that's how BBYO On Demand, the coolest platform I've ever been a part of, was created.
Well, going back to elections, we obviously had to have them virtually, via BBYO On Demand. It was a very different experience, but a good one. I, the new N’siah of Ligdol, personally felt a little more confident and relaxed, less nervous, and less anxious, which doesn't mean I prefer virtual elections rather than face-to-face elections, but it certainly had its advantages.
A week later, today, May 9th, SHAbados ran their virtual elections. Argentina’s regional board is now officially complete and ready to work hard and have fun!
I’m very proud to be Ligdol’s 4th N’siah and so excited about what's to come!
