Documents concerning the assembly sessions of the Seventh National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America.

The Industrial and Business and Professional Assemblies meet together for the first time and discuss their structure and organization, their relationship to each other and cooperation with other groups. The Industrial Assembly also discusses their relationship to the Student Assembly. In addition to cooperation with other organizations and the progress of the student Christian movement, the Student Assembly discusses the alternate membership basis for affiliation. Other convention materials include further reports and documentation concerning the membership basis, correspondence regarding efforts to have an interracial convention, a book of folk songs and the constitution of the YWCA of the U.S.A.
