Conventions, eleventh, 1930

Scope and Contents

Eleventh National convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America call to convention, convention program, and bulletins. Daily bulletins, distributed to each delegate in attendance, provide updates on convention activities and special events, make announcements, and share news or updates in short article form. In addition, daily bulletins have a detailed schedule for the day. The series of bulletins sent to delegates prior to the convention are meant to prepare them for convention by sharing background information, informing recipients of guidelines and procedures for selecting delegates, and asking delegates to reflect on certain topics or discussion questions. This information also includes discussion of the proposed emphasis in program for the upcoming biennium. These proposals include international relations, improved working conditions, work with immigrants, maternal and child welfare, adherence to prohibition laws and citizenship. Other matters addressed in the bulletins include a proposal to adopt a triennial schedule, and discussions of the changing social and economic environment in the United States.
