Conventions, twenty-second, 1961

Scope and Contents

Program, workbook, and call to the Twenty-second National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. Prior to each convention the National Board distributes a workbook containing a review of YWCA of the U.S.A. work over the past three years, and information to prepare the delegates for what will be discussed at the coming convention. The workbook covers finances, organization and structure of the national and local associations, an update of basic standards, an overview of the public affairs program, and more. A report and study by Dan W. Dodson titled, "The role of the YWCA in a changing era," studies the cooperation between the YMCA and the YWCA and what the role of a women's organization and women's movement means in the sixties.
