Transcript Meetings 1st & 3rd Wednesdays, 7 00pm at the Austin Women's Center Austin 78?03 A | | ( 1—r K I 1208 Baylor St'.t Pres: Sue Rlcket 836-9^62 V.P.: Carolyn Todd 478-3192 Sees Ann Brooke ^65-9269 DECEMBER 1973 liZfiSLZTTZii op__*!_!____on NATIONAL TGAPJIZATIOI FOR WOM1N The Texas NOW Organizing Conference on November 17 was a very successful meeting. Texas NOW is now swinging into action. Our first elected State Coordinator is Martha Dickey, of Dallas County NOW, who had served as the Temporary Coordinator in organizing the Conference. Yours truly, Sue Ricket, is the State Treasurer, and Suzanne Santlstevan of Waco is State Fund Raiser. Suzanne de Satrustegui, president of San Antonio NOW, is State Legislative Coordinator; Jane Baker of Dallas NCW is State Communications Director. The state has been divided into five Regions; ours is Region 4, and Includes Austin, Temple, and El Faso. (SI Faso? Well, I didn't draw the regional boundaries.) Each Region has a Membership Coordinator to help at-large members elect their State Council representatives and to serve as referal person for new members or potential members in the region; Linda Clonch of Temple is our Membership Coordinator. The Conference also included speeches by Dallas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson and NOW Southern Regional Director Jackie Frost, and a workshop on chapter growth by Mary Jean Collins-Robson of Chicago, who is on the National Board of NOW. I am including with this newsletter the write-up on Austin NOW that was Included in the Convenor's Nit at the conference. Cur chapter meeting with Mary Teague, the University's Equal Employment Opportunity Officer, was very interesting. L'.T.'s Affirmative Action Program is mediocre at best. It was surprising and encouraging that they hired Ms. Teague, a committed feminist and humanist, to administer the program; but they have allocated woefully insufficient funds and staff to be able to do even the little they had promised to do, and appointed tb the Council on Women and Minorities, people who are Indifferent or hostile to the implementation of the A.A.F. Chapter elections are scheduled for December 5» There are as yet no announced candidates for any office. (Besides the offices of president, vice president, and secretary-treasurer, we need to elect a chapter representative to the State Council.) Elections will be by self-nomination from the floor. Frankly, I am perplexed: chapter membership has grown quite a bit in the last few months, but no one seems to want to do. anything. If the chapter Just wants to have a monthly speaker and let it go at that, I guess that's o.k.; but since its inception in 1967, NOW has always been an action-oriented organization, working actively to counteract the pervasive sexism in our society. Perhaps chapter members are Just feeling "actlvltied- out," I don't know. But if you want Austin NOW to continue, giving us money isn't enough - you will have to contribute at least enough time and Interest to see that we have officers, and th** the officers know in what direction you want the chapter to move. Voting and offices are open to all chapter members; non-members may attend, though they may not vote. Please come and bring Austin NOW back together. (If no officers are found, the chapter will submerge into limbo until new officers do appear.) Assuming that officers are elected, I suggest that the scheduled Dec. 19 meeting be used by the new officers to organize for the coming year, with the meeting open to anyone with ideas to contribute. Happy holidays to all!
