Notes for planning meeting, 1972
TO: REGIONAL CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS FROM: MARY WEXFORD AND JANE GOULD RE: PLANNING METING, WEDNESDAY 20 SEPTEMBER, 4:00 p.m. Since the date set for the Regional Conference is Saturday 11 November, it is important that we meet as soon as possible to define more precisely the shape and scope of the conference and of each workshop and to get a progress report from each sponsoring college on the status of its workshop. We have not been able to reach all of you by phone, but Wednesday 20 Septem- ber seems to be the best date for most. Hence we have set the meeting for that day at 4:00 p.m. in the Women's Center (100 Barnard Hall, on Broadway at 117th Street). Please try to have at least one person from your group attend the meeting and we would be delighted if you would bring along any others who are working with you on the conference. Enclosed are a suggested agenda for the meeting and the proposed format for workshops to help guide your planning prior to the meeting. There are several pressing problems about which some firm decisions must be made before we can go any further. We must determine the size and cost of the conference, how wide the publicity for it will be, and how the expenses will be met. We hope that each group will be able to make some firm commitment toward the costs of the conference at this meeting. Please call if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions. Our phone is 212-280-2067. Please also return the enclosed reply card to let us know whether or not you will be able to come to the meeting.
