American Turners National Council Records

Permanent URI for this collection

The National Council is the chief executive body of the American Turners. Working through the national office, it oversees the operation of the national organization and its relationship with the member societies. In the 19th and early 20th centuries it was known as the Vorort, and its membership was made up of Turners from the city hosting the national office. After World War I the name of the body was changed to National Executive Committee. In 1950 the national convention voted to restructure of the body and change its name to the National Council. It is now composed of elected national officers, district representatives, and chairs of national standing committees.
