LocalYW‘ Members At Ohio Meet Members of the East Raleigh Branch Young Women’s Christian Association, upon their return home last week, reported to the local membership on their participation in another historic Association con vention in Cleveland, Ohio. In the city, where in 1910 the YWCA adapted a statement in which the organization assumed re sponsibility to help correct social injustices, the 33rd national con vention took major steps in relation to both the YWCA’s membership policy and to its commitment to further racial integration. In the action on membership, the convention voted, according to Mrs. Lillian Freeman, secretary of Com mittee on Administration and Mrs. J. A. Boyer, branch director, the YWCA opened voting righto to all dues-paying members over 17 years of age. Previously, they pointed out voting members had to assent to the YWCA’s Christian Purpose. The new policy does require, however, that all leaders must accept indi vidual responsibility for furthering the Christian purpose of the YWCA in the life of the Association. Lead ers include members of the board of directors, professional staff, stand ing committee and the voting dels* j gates to the national convention. In another action, the convention also took cognizance of the Asso ciation's concern for further study on its role and responsibility as a Christian movement by voting es tablishment of a national commis sion to work closely with local As sociations. The commission will ex plore what is involved in being a movement that is both Christian and open to all women and girls in communities with wide-spread re ligious pluralism and many persons of no religious faith. The convention also adopted a mong program priorities for the next triennim a “deepened recog nition of the YWCA's responsibil ity for providing for its members opportunities to increase their knowledge of the Christian faith as a basis for discerning life's ijpeaning. for making responsible : personal decisions and for engaging in civic responsibility and social ac tion.'’ !
