National Board minutes and reports, 1965
Scope and Contents
The National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. is the governing body of the YWCA of the U.S.A. responsible for policy and administration guiding the entirety of the organization. In addition, the National Board is responsible for the overarching decisions of the organization with committees, departments and local associations implementing decisions at their level and interests. Meetings of the full board take place over several days and in between these full meetings shorter meetings with a partial representation of the board take place to discuss business and reports that come up between the full meetings. Board members discuss policy and procedure, hear reports from groups, committees and commissions, discuss the purpose and aim of the organization, and review financial reports.
