Office of Regional Affairs and Regional Conferences

The North American Office of Regional Affairs was dissolved in 1978. There was no new office to replace it, for its work was channeled to the regional conferences and the Black Caucus. A new office, the Office of Ethnic Relations, was created in 1979; its name was changed to the Office of Human Relations in 1980. Its focus is different from the Regional Affairs mission, but it does maintain statistics and background on not only the regional work but the work of other ethnic groups as well. Thus, for the history, development, and statistics of the North American Regional Affairs Office and of the regional conferences, see Human Relations, Office of .
