Administrative history

The objectives of the Nova Scotia Family and Child Welfare Association, founded in 1968, were to coordinate the family and child welfare activities of its members; to foster public interest in the welfare of families and children; and to promote study, research, and education pertaining to family and child welfare programs and legislation.

The association was preceded by the Nova Scotia Child Welfare Association. The officers of the association included a President, Past President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer. The executive was composed of Officers, a Chairman of the Standing Committees, and six Members-at-Large. The association also consisted of several committees, including Legislation, Nominating, Publicity, Maintenance Rates and Finance, Personnel Standards and Practices, Annual Meeting Program, and Study and Research Committees.

Annual General Meetings were held annually in June and there were a minimum of four executive meetings each year. Membership was open to recognized agencies concerned with the welfare of families and children and was subject to the approval of the executive.
