Conventions, tenth, 1928

Scope and Contents

Official National Board reports to the Tenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. These detailed reports begin with a introduction of the function and purpose of the National Board stated as, "to establish and develop unity." The report goes on to summarize the "interests and concerns" of member groups including business and professional women, work with immigrants, Native American women, Girl Reserve and others. Relationships with other organizations such as the YMCA and the World YWCA are explored followed by a discussion of the purpose of the national organization. Finally, updates are given on resolutions and national projects decided at the previous convention. Those projects include Asilomar conference grounds, YWCA work in the Canal Zone, the Hollywood Studio Club YWCA, and the running of the Grace Dodge Hotel.
