Conventions, twelfth, 1932

Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the assemblies of the Twelfth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. During each convention the business and professional, industrial, and student groups meet to discuss and act on matters of national importance. The main focus of the business and professional and industrial assemblies is on the unemployment situation and wages. Each assembly addresses these issues as it applies to their own members. The student assembly discusses membership, their relationship with the YWCA and other organizations, the role of religion, and the functions of the YWCA of the U.S.A. Student Department.
