National Consumers' League
Officers, 1933 and 1941

Italicized names indicate those who were officers in both 1933 and 1941. All board members were elected to two-year terms. After Florence Kelley died, the national league was reorganized to create a more active board. One change was to make room for more board members by making branch league presidents ex officio members with the right to vote. The council met annually.
