Scope and Contents
Document concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. regional designations, regional planning and regional program. In order to recognize regional differences while maintaining national unity, the YWCA of the U.S.A. establishes regions to better understand the needs of the different parts of the country and inform the national program and program implementation. Regional offices facilitate a closer relationship between local associations and the national organization. Reports, correspondence, notes and meeting minutes concern the formation and reorganization of regional lines, the functions of regional staff, assessments of regional needs, visitation reports, the relationship between regions, local associations and the National Board, developing leadership and discussions of regional social and economic conditions.
