1943 National Convention

1943 National Convention

Called a National Leadership School and War Service Conference, the 18th National Convention was a trimmed-down, no-frills affair. Hazel Falconer Benninghoven, Social Service Chairman, gave a presentation on the Fraternity's war service and social service projects called "Phi Mu Goes to War," which included women in their civil defense, motor corps, Red Cross, and other service uniforms. This was the last convention to vote for General Council officers, including District Presidents, as a Bylaws change approved during the convention allowed for these officers to be appointed by the National Council.
