Katz and Ms. Bronk, in an
interview shortly after Mrs.
Katz took office.
At the organization's
centennial convention, held
in Chicago in March, a
majority of the 1,300 at-
tendees were between ages
33 and 50. There was also a
stronger presence of women
ages 25 through 35 than
there had been in the past,
said Mrs. Katz.
Many younger members
are professional women, or
recently stopped working in
order to raise small children,
she said.
And there has also been an
influx of women who are re-
cent retirees. These are wo-
men "who come to the
organization with tremen-
dous skills," said Mrs. Katz.
"It takes the organization
to new heights. We just need
to be ready to move to
them," she said.
One of NCJW's latest
efforts is built around the
women and men — but most-
ly women — who care not
just for children, but for ag-
ing parents, as well. They
constitute a population
which will grow dramati-
cally in coming years,
demographers say, and
NCJW is working to focus
attention on their predica-
ment.
The centerpiece of the
effort will be the National
Day of the Working Parent,
scheduled to take place in
hundreds of communities
around the country on Sept.
9.
In major urban centers, in-
cluding New York, Chicago,
Washington, Dallas, Atlanta
and Boston, as well as hun-
dreds of smaller com-
munities, NCJW volunteers
will distribute 100,000
"Food for Thought" lunch
boxes to men and women.
Inside recipients will find
information on local child-
care and elder-care
resources.
The point, said Mrs. Katz,
is to raise the consciousness
of employers, government
and the grass-roots level
about the problem.

To make National Day of
the Working Parent a real-
ity, NCJW enlisted the help
of corporate sponsors, which
include Marriott Corp.,
American Express, Conde
Nast and Johnson &
Johnson.
It is the first time that
NCJW has worked with cor-
porate sponsorship, which is
a reflection of the pragmatic
approach the organization
takes to solving some of the
problems of American wo-
men.
