Download PDF for this date

Esther Landa of Salt Lake City, immediate past national president of the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is one of 20 members named by President Carter to the Commission for a National Agenda for the 1980s, which has just been created.

The Commission will examine major national concerns including inflation, energy and demographic population shifts. Headed by Dr. William J. McGill, president of Columbia University, the new panel will make general recommendations in a report scheduled for completion sometime after the 1980 Presidential elections. Mrs. Landa, who completed four years as president of the NCJW in March, is also a member of the President’s Advisory Committee for Women.
