Transcript WOMEN IN NONTRADITIONAL JOBS The April program featured a panel discussion including guest speakers Gertrude Barnstone, welder and sculptor; Becky Cottingham, unit operator for a local refinery; Beverly Board, galley cook on an offshore vessel; and Carolyn Conley, an engineer. Carolyn spoke about networking with co-workers and the importance of her belief in her own ability to achieve. Becky presented the difficulty of dealing with male co-workers during offshore duty stretches of as long as two weeks. Becky's job experiences pointed out ways in which antagonism from male co-workers can affect a woman's career. Gertrude's skill, which uses portable equipment and allows some freedom from the 9-to-5 week or self-employment, permits her the time to seriously pursue her interest in sculpture. Common reasons for entering a nontraditional field include a need for high income or dissatisfaction with more traditional roles. Frequent pitfalls are antagonistic co-workers, difficulties establishing professional relationships with male colleagues and an overly strong sense of "bearing the burden" of women entering a formerly male field—which often pushes women into unreasonably demanding perfection of themselves on the first try at every task. Networking, family support, a sense of fulfillment from doing worthwhile tasks and belief in self were all mentioned as important foundations for life in the previously-male areas of the working world. BUSINESS MEETING (3 April 1980) A card was passed around for signatures to offer thanks for food prepared by Alma Green for the State Council and a general thank you was made for all the others who helped make the Council meeting pleasant. (For details of the State Council meeting, see a report elsewhere in the newsletter.) The State Convention will be in Huntsville May 16-18, All Texas NOW members will receive a call to convention by mail.

Evie Whitsett, Wendy Rudnicki and Jean Saletan will serve on the committee. A motion to purchase a banner from National for the march at a cost of $50 was defeated. For those who plan to attend the march, note that Jan Stevens (Houston) is coordinating transportation from this area and Judy Blanchard (BANOW) is arranging alternate housing.
