USWT Committees

Committee Meetings are held at each national meeting, usually after the Executive Committee meeting, but prior to the Board of Directors meeting. The purpose of the committee meetings is to review procedures and programs of the United States Women of Today and to make recommendations for additions or changes; this includes changes to the bylaws and policies.

All members of the Board of Directors serve on one or more committees. These committee assignments are made shortly after the Annual Convention in June. General members may also serve on national committees upon request and approval by the national president.
