A resolution received from NAEHE concerning the preparation of citizens for leadership and participation in public affairs was presented to the NDAEHE for a vote and passed.

A survey will be sent to Extension Home Economics late this year. Home Economists will be asked to share briefly, ideas they or their clubs have used in public affairs. This idea exchange will be put into some form of loan program for use by Homemakers and Home Economists and 4-H people.

A discussion was held concerning sponsoring a State Homemaker's Tour to Bismarck during the legislative session (late January).

An education program beginning in evening and lasting through the next day is proposed. An overview of the legislature, attending the legislative, meetings, Heritage Center, and Governor's Mansion are some of the ideas proposed. The association decided to hold the tour.
