Scope and Contents

National conventions are called every three years to vote on leadership for the coming cycle, adopt program emphases, discuss social, political, spiritual and economic issues affecting communities and conduct national business. The booklet "Who's Who" is sent out prior to convention to prepare voting delegates to select members of the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A., World YWCA Council and National Nominating Committee of the YWCA of the U.S.A. The booklet lists candidates with brief information regarding their experience and roles. In addition to "Who's Who" delegates receive workbooks to prepare them for the convention business and discussion topics. The convention workbook contains a report from the National Board of the previous three years, summaries of proposed actions and program emphases and also includes selected reading and discussion guides.

Special Y-Teen sessions at the convention include the teenage members in the convention process and offers chances for them to meet and discuss the unique issues they face as a member group.
