Greater Jersey Hudson River Region

From Wikibbyo

The Greater Jersey Hudson River Region (commonly referred to as the GJHRR) is the order's largest region with over 1400 members. We are recognized as one of the biggest regions in all of BBYO. The region generally has four (previously five) regional conventions a year, including RLTI (August), RJI (October), MIT (February/March), and LIFE (May). The region also holds one council convention a year for both Northern and Central Council called Spirit that takes place in December. The region previously held Spring Convention every other year in April, however, as of now there are no plans to continue Spring Convention. GJHRR is a region split into two councils each with an AZA and BBG board. There is no regional board, but the four council presidents act as the RCC or Regional Coordinating Committee.

The region employs three staff members, Judith Youngman, the region's longtime senior regional director, and the two assistant regional directors, Amanda Strasser and Robert Kappel.
