Conventions, seventh, 1922

Scope and Contents

Stenotype proceedings of the Seventh National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. The detailed proceedings follow the convention from opening remarks to the final adjournment. Sessions often begin with a prayer or devotional remark and continue on to business meetings, addresses, presentation of reports or other special services. The theme of the addresses is "The Business of Peace" and the topics include interracial relations, economics and the rural woman and the international situation. In addition, reports presented to the convention include updates from departments, discussions of financing and the organization of the YWCA of the U.S.A., updates of work in foreign countries, a study of standards in city associations and discussion of the basis for membership. Business meetings concern the passing of resolutions, nominations of committee and board members and other matters requiring votes or consensus.
