Transcript NOW Vol. 4, No. 8 THE HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN BROADSIDE August 1973 ******************* *********ir****** WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE ? ******************* Generally, the first consideration of newly elected officers is to establish some sort of objective for the coming year. At the May 15 meeting of the Board we tried to do just that. First of all, we acknowledged the fact that NOW energies are "spread thin" but then, the nature of sexism is such that there are no areas of society free from it, so our battlefields are infinite in number. We must and will continue to influence society in every possible way, yet it was felt that specific short range goals would provide positive direction for the membership as a group, sometimes a virtue in itself. Because there are several tasks which demand immediate and concentrated attention, the Board decided to present them to you as suggestions for NOW objectives for the next twelve months: (1) 1974 NOW National Convention. This is one task we have already committed ourselves to by bidding for the convention. Marlyne Kilbey, National Board member, reported that our bid was accepted, and we are to expect 6,000! ! people here in May of 1974. Need I say more? (2) Membership Drive. As a direct result of the national convention will be increased interest in NOW (witness the by Jeanne Necaise ••••• *********** after effects of the National Women's Political Caucus convention last March). We must not let the opportunity slip by to add to our already growing membership and to help establish new chapters in the surrounding areas. To make the most of the situation, the Board suggests that a Membership Director's office be established. The person appointed or elected to the position will not only help the chapter to assimilate new members but will actively seek new members from minority communities. The Membership Director would also serve as counsel to persons in outlying areas who are interested in founding chapters. (3) FCC License Reviews. The summer of 1974 will see Houston area television stations receiving license renewals from the FCC. We must take advantage of these renewals to influence programming and employment, presenting the FCC with facts as to the current state of broadcasting and demanding denials of licenses until these situations have been corrected. The monitoring necessary to supply evidence for the FCC has been successfully used by other NOW chapters and will require only one week of effort with each person responsible for viewing as little as one hour per day.
