Conventions, seventeenth, 1946

Scope and Contents

Seventeenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America call to convention, workbook, and bulletins. The theme of the convention is "One world under God" and materials focus on international aspects and the Christian purpose. As the first national convention since 1940, the call and preparatory materials give delegates an overview of national progress since the last convention with much focus on how the war affected the direction and work on the YWCA of the U.S.A. To prepare delegates for the convention, a workbook is distributed containing the National Board's report, assessment of work in all areas of the YWCA and summaries of business and actions to be voted on at convention hearings. Daily Bulletins update convention attendees of the daily schedule, make announcements, and share information in short article form.
