Standards study reports and forms, 1935-1938
Scope and Contents
Following an action at the 1934 convention of the YWCA of the U.S.A., the standards study is organized in 1936 to study the relationship between local associations and the National Board, policies for affiliation with the national organization and the standards of an affiliation in good standing with the National Board. Reports compile the results of the studies, make recommendations, describe the context of the reason for the studies and present the method of information gathering. A branch study is conducted after the initial standards study to investigate the practices and standards concerning branch associations. Also included are forms and questionnaires used to collect information for the studies.
