Conventions, twelfth, 1932

Scope and Contents

Twelfth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America call to convention 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. With the Depression underway, the convention themes concern how the economic conditions are affecting associations and their members. In addition, the National Board is facing a reorganization and proposed changes and studies are described in the bulletins.
