Conventions, seventeenth, 1946

Scope and Contents

Proceedings, bulletins, and reports of the YWCA of the U.S.A. Business and Professional Assembly at the Seventeenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. Following World War II there is a lot of emphasis on democracy, world politics, and affiliations with other organizations. In this second half of the proceedings much discussion is given to joining with the World Federation of Democratic Youth, what they stand for and what democracy means to the organization. Affiliating with the National Council of Scientific, Professional, Art, and White Collar Workers is also discussed and passed. In addition to cooperation with other organizations the assembly tackles issues of employment, special training, job security, and pay equity. Post assembly bulletins and reports provide an overview to be reviewed by those not in attendance.
