Conferences, 1942-1948

Scope and Contents

Regional conferences, held in the year prior to a national conference, serve as a forum for delegates to convene, share ideas and discuss the national emphasis and proposals. Conferences invite speakers to address the chosen theme of the conference and host discussion groups around those themes. Materials demonstrate efforts of leaders and the national organization to achieve interracial conferences and to discuss problems of racism and race relations in the YWCA of the U.S.A. International issues are important at the conferences concerning both in YWCA service to immigrants in how the United States relates to the world during and after World War II. In addition, regional conferences assess how the ideas and aims of the National Board are realized in local associations.
