A place for spirited conversation about BBYO

In the Clear

Tue, 01 Mar 2011 08:46:07 +0000

An Aleph recently complained to me that his advisor would not allow his chapter to hold events if they did not clear them at least a week an advance. Some of you reading this might say this is perfectly reasonable – the requirement ensures that there is plenty of time for the advisor to review […]

Chapter 911

Sun, 26 Dec 2010 09:28:01 +0000

LA in AZ writes: My chapter is falling apart. Girls hate each other, very few feel they can depend on other girls. It has turned into a high school situation in which theres the “cool” girls with power and then the others. I, as well as my sisters, have lost the love we once had […]

Leading from afar

Fri, 17 Sep 2010 09:06:40 +0000

You have to pity the regional and international boards. They often have great leadership skills, vision, dedication and ideas. Yet they are completely dependent on others to implement those visions. Consider the Grand Aleph Godol, International N’siah, any regional board member for example: they can have a great idea, but to make something happen at […]

The Essence of Leadership

Mon, 01 Feb 2010 08:54:08 +0000

Everyone knows that BBYO is a youth led organization. And in developing youth leaders your chapter and region has more than likely run leadership programs of various types. In those programs the question has probably been asked: “What is a leader?” And as part of that program you have probably heard numerous answers and opinions. […]

Drugs and BBYO

Fri, 26 Jun 2009 00:18:26 +0000

It’s no secret that some BBYO members use drugs. I realize it’s not something anyone wants to talk about publicly – nobody wants BBYO to be associated with drug use (never mind the fact that members of every other youth organization do drugs as well). But ignoring the problem doesn’t solve it. Especially if you […]

Who should run for regional board?

Mon, 29 Dec 2008 10:14:40 +0000

I recently received the following question from an Aleph: Recently, one of the ideas we had was that members of chapters in bad standing should not be allowed to run for regional board, the thought being that the chapter should come first (and needs them more). One of the cited examples of why this policy […]

There’s an old Chinese curse: “May you live in interesting times”. It’s a curious saying. The problem with living in “interesting times” is that the interest comes from change. Sometimes the change is for the better – for example: changes in technology over the past decades have certainly been interesting (that cool IPhone you just […]

Ideas have great power. After all, what binds BBYO together more than money and organization are the common ideas and values we share. When you come right down to it, this entire site has been about ideas, because shared vision and ideas have much greater power to build BBYO than rules, policies and even money. […]

Frat Program

Fri, 06 Jun 2008 06:57:37 +0000

I recently received an inquiry from an Aleph who asked: …was wondering if you knew any good fraternity programs, since that would be useful to the region and our chapter… That started me thinking. What would make a good fraternity program (and for the purposes of this conversation, let’s assume everything I say refers to […]

You Say Yes… I Say No….

Fri, 02 May 2008 05:26:51 +0000

What makes a good leader or manager? Answering that question would take a book (and there are any number of books written on the topic). And of course, there are many answers to the question. But one in particular comes up often in BBYO, and it’s a bit subtle. Subtle, in that it’s a matter […]
