Other Activities in 1984–85

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Special gifts from Mutual of America Insurance, Margaret and Harold Feldman, the Congress of Affiliated Councils, and the Minnesota Council on Family Relations enabled NCFR to purchase online services to The Washington Post’s Congressional Tracking System for a year. These services were shared by NCFR, the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and FSA and made it possible for the organizations to obtain information on daily activities and votes of Congress and access all Washington Post articles related to Congressional decision making. A legislative news flyer, called COFO Report, was sent each month to the Affiliated Councils and Family Action Section members.Reuben HillReuben Hill
