The Key Woman Award was initiated and awarded for the first time to recognize women who are leaders in their local churches. Jean Kennedy, presented three women who were nominated by their local church: Eugenia Caldwell, Ardis Chapel A.M.E.Z; Addie Brown Hargrave, Jerusalem Baptist and Phyllis Thomside, St. Luke Baptist.

Dora Correll, Ecumenical Actions Chair, announced the ingathering of donated items for the Family Crisis Council.
