2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In 1953, a conference evaluation committee recommended a more structured approach to program planning. They recommended that the NCFR President-Elect become the chairperson for the program planning. The program committee should consist of the local site chairperson, section chair, and additional persons appointed by the program chair. This reconstruction underscored the vital role that the sections would play in conference preparation. The preplanning emphasis assisted the council leaders in guiding the course of the conferences, thereby increasing their future effectiveness.
