NATIONAL LEAGUE CONVENTION NEWS

Convention '84 - May 13-17

WESTIN HOTEL DETROIT, MICHIGAN

Excerpts from the message from President Dorothy Ridings reads:

"The setting is Detroit -- dubbed lately as SuperCity USA -- melting pot of nationalities and cultures, a city itself facing the challenge for creative revitalization. The League faces a similar need to expand horizons and respond even more to the breadth and depth of issues of our times.

"As we convene in Detroit's Renaissance Center, we are reminded that traditionally the biennial convention offers a time of renewal for League members. We renew our commitment to work for the League purposes --informed and active citizen participation in government.

"Face to face in Detroit, League members will have the opportunity to examine national issues and determine which ones will get League study and action. We will talk seriously about how the League will respond to the many issues that are shaping the course of this country's future. We will, undoubtedly, set priorities in order to make the best use of our human and financial resources."
