·  Scope and Content   The Country Directors Conferences series is comprised of sixty-five files and covers the years 1955-1964. The series contains transcripts of the proceedings of JDC's annual Country Directors Conferences for the years 1955-1963, officially named the Overseas Conference starting in 1959 due to increased participation by people not affiliated with JDC, such as European Jewish community leaders and UJA delegations. These conferences summarized the situations of Jewish communities and JDC operations and served as platforms for discussing problems and challenges faced by JDC and planning for the future. The 1960 and 1961 conference proceedings also include the proceedings of the Assembly of European Jewish Communities which developed out of the Country Directors Conferences and which was held under the officially independent auspices of the Standing Conference on European Jewish Community Services in subsequent years. The proceedings of the 1964 conference are not present in this collection, but a transcript is available in the New York 1955-1964 collection. Besides conference proceedings, other files contain correspondence about preparation for the conferences, lists of invitees and participants, conference programs, delegate kits, and other materials relating to the preparation for and follow-up on conferences. In addition to the annual conferences, in some years there were "little country directors conferences" to focus more exclusively on JDC personnel and their challenges in a more intimate setting, as well as other conferences involving subsets of country directors facing common challenges, and the proceedings of those meetings are present in this series. The series also contains manuals for the preparation of the annual conferences from 1956 and 1961.
