Conventions, fourteenth, 1936

Scope and Contents

National Board reports and guiding principles of the Fourteenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. The National Board report summarizes and assesses their work over the past two years leading up to the convention. The report reflects upon the reduced staff and budget of the past two years and how that has affected local associations and their members. A published report on the study of standards, conducted since the previous convention, looks at the standardization and evaluation of member associations' affiliation with the YWCA of the U.S.A. Guiding Principles describe the emphases for the national program and the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s constituent groups while clarifying the National Board's role in carrying out the emphasis.
