District associations are a federation of community associations that are otherwise unable to support an independently affiliated association. The administrative and organizational history of the district association can be traced through its constitutions and bylaws in addition to association fact sheets, historical notes and a history of the YWCA in Vermont. Visitation reports from field secretaries include descriptions and assessments of the association's programs and performance in addition to comments on any challenges the association may face.
