Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 _ THE LETHRRIDGE HERAID Tucstlny, December 7, 1971 Calgary women's group want role of watchdog NEW PC WOMEN'S PRESIDENT Mrs. Maurice Holt, Peterborough, Ont., olderman, was elected president the Progressive Conservative Women's Association of inada ot its annual meeting in Ottawa. CALGARY (CPi Two city women's groups want to give the government a hand in run- ning one of its services, at no cost to the province. The service in question is the Alberta Women's Bureau and the organizations propose wom- en volunteers work directly in the bureau operations. A brief from the local Council of Women, and another from (lie Calgary chapter of the Voice of Women said the vol- unteers could deal with re- quests for information and do general office work. The women involved would become more knowledgable both of government programs and public concerns. Both briefs, along wilh a third from executive members of the Junior Lf.aguc of Cal- gary, said improved communi-' cations and a structure to fully inform women's groups of de-1 velopmcnts concerning them were needed. "Much duplication occurs in the various projects and con-1 eerns of women's organiza-1 lions.'' said the Council ot j Women. 1 "By informing each other of present programs, unnecessary overlap may be avoided and in- tegrated be rea1' izcd." The briefs from the Voice ot Women and the Council of Women proposed an elected board representing provincial women's organizations. It would perform a watchdog role by keeping tabs on the bu-1 reau and would report directly j to the provincial -executive j council and the federal secre- tary of stale. I Both said there must he pro-, vincial and federal co-opera-1 tion and financial support in providing services specifically for women. To help keep women involved in their own affairs and aware of developments, a newsletter was suggested, as were educa- tion workshops and regular television programs. The Council of Women also thai one senior s.aff member of each provincial de- partment work closely with the Albena Women's Bureau and tint tho bureau locate in com- nuii'ilics where it would give a 2-1-hotir access. Ann Van Heteren. author of the Council of Women brief, said ll-.e idea was lo expand bu- reau scnws to all major popu- lation centres. Tho bureau was formed five years ago as an information centre for women.
