National Board reports to the Twelfth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. The National Board reports provide an overview of the association in 1932 and its work with member groups including young girls, students, businesswomen, industrial women, African American women, immigrants, Native American women and "women with daytime leisure." The reports also summarize national program with the emphasis on health and recreation, economic questions, national and international interests, religion, family and sex relationships and the creative arts. In addition, the reports discuss organization and finance, cooperation with other organizations and the National Board's service to local associations. Special projects of the National Board include the Canal Zone work, Asilomar, camps, the Hollywood Studio Club, the Grace Dodge Hotel, Fletcher Farm and the Chautauqua Hospitality House. A separate report, "The Proposed Program for the Biennium," goes into further detail regarding the emphases and program specifics for the coming years.
