Transcript A Texas NOW Times Volume 6 Number 3 October 1982 STATE CONVENTION REPORT Texas NOW restructured again at its convention August 27-29. In place of the former VP, State Membership Coord and (appointed) Task Force Coord, we now have three elected Vice Presidents: Action, Membership and Communications. The officers for this term are: PRESIDENT: VP-ACTION: VP-MEMBERSHIP: VP-COMMUNICATIONS: SECRETARY: TREASURER: AREA I MEMBERSHIP: AREA III MEMBERSHIP: AREA IV MEMBERSHIP: AREAS II AND V: Mary Calk Anne Miller Rick Tonsing Bonnie Huval Maria Longnecker Janell Jenkins Debby Floyd Deborah Bell Margaret Lawrence no nominees A bylaws amendment to allocate State Council representation for at-large Texas NOW members failed. All other proposed amendments passed essentially as presented, so: at least national NOW membership is required 30 days before a state convention for creden- tialing at the conventio; no one may hold more than one Texas NOW office at a time; an officer who relinquishes Texas NOW membership (for examples, by moving out of state) also vacates office. Resolutions passed to: deposit excess Texas NOW funds in (a) women' s/feminist credit union(s) in Texas; designate violence against women as a state priority issue; support the Kennedy-Hatf ield nuclear freeze proposal; support re-authorization of Legal Services Corp. without restrictions and with substantial funding; and support union dues checkoff for state employees. Seven candidates for national NOW office attended, spoke and were eagerly queried by convention attendees: PRESIDENT: Jane Wells-Schooley Sonia Johnson Mary McQuay VP-EXEC: Barbara Duke (later withdrew) SECRETARY: Kathy Webb Katie Harris TREASURER: Alice Chapman NATIONAL CONFERENCE REPORT There were about 2000 credentialed delegates and perhaps as many non-voting attendees in Indianapolis October 8-10. The main business at hand: elections, even more pivotal than usual because the term will be three years (to return us to the normal schedule) with the organization at possibly its most critical turning point. The outcome will affect the nation's future profoundly. Would America's largest and fastest-growing women's rights group splinter over internal matters? What if we abandoned efforts to work through the system, taking more radical action in the future? NOW's membership, which reached 140,000 early this year, is approaching 250,000. The seriousness of, these elections was underscored by the large number of candidates, the press attention received, and the preliminary campaign expenses— ranging from" $2000 to $15,000 in the presidential race, and to $9800 in the secretary's race. Those on the slate unofficially endorsed by outgoing Pres. Ellie Smeal are denoted by *, and winners appear in script: PRESIDENT: Judy Goldsmith* Jane Wells-Schooley Sonia Johnson Ann Lang Mary McQuay VP-ACTION: Mary Jean Collins* Ginny Foat Carol King Kathy Samer VP-EXEC: Barbara Tlmmer Maureen Rogman Gloria Sackman-Reed* Dian Kiser SECRETARY: Kathy Webb Katie Harris* Lois Reckitt Celia Higley TREASURER: Alice Chapman* Lillian Kozak Several independents also preferred Chapman for the Treasurer's position. - continued on page 2 -
