Structure and Governance in 1950–51

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Robert Foster was chair of the committee to appraise and revise the NCFR Constitution and thus was responsible for defining the function and relationship of NCFR to its committees and crafting guides for future development.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In October 1951, Nelson Foote was authorized to conduct a survey of the objectives and programs of NCFR and the organization’s place in the total picture of family life education and NCFR’s relationship to other organizations and to analyze executive duties. This was completed in January 1952. The report led to dissent among leaders. Some believed in expanding NCFR’s membership and scope and that it should serve as an action group on public matters influencing family life, whereas others wanted to continue as a group joined “to promote inter-professional understanding and collaboration” (1952 committee report). Several of Foote’s recommendations were added to the revised Constitution.
