Statements and memorandums concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s position on peace and documents concerning personnel policies and services. In response to the international political climate and developments in the atomic age, the YWCA of the U.S.A., through its public affairs programs, releases a statement on peace. Additional position statements concern the Atoms for Peace program and its relationship to the United Nations, disarmament, universal military training and the food for peace bill. Following the peace statement are documents concerning personnel policies, management and services in the YWCA of the U.S.A. The personnel administration manual for employees details personnel policies, suggests best practices for staff in local associations and provides basic job descriptions. The responsibility of the development of these policies and providing personnel services to local associations is given to the YWCA of the U.S.A. Personnel Policies and Services Department. Their role and relationship to the National Association of Professional Workers (NAPW) is outlined in committee and department charters. NAPW is developed to provide an opportunity for workers to unite, study the professional standards within the YWCA of the U.S.A. and make recommendations to the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. NAPW's constitution and bylaws, meeting minutes, pamphlet and reports outline and describe their responsibilities, services to employees, relationship to the National Board and the employee and issues of importance. Bulletins highlight news, events and important facts.
