Scope and Contents
Meeting minutes, correspondence and other documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. employee associations. The National Association of Professional Workers (N.A.P.W.), previously the Secretaries' Association and the National Association of Employed Officers (N.A.E.O.), is a membership organization for YWCA of the U.S.A. employees to discuss job standards and conditions, develop as leaders, exchange ideas among other professionals and discuss areas of personnel and employment that need improvement. Though not a union, the association allows workers to unite and use their collective influence to inform organizational decisions.
