The 90th Annual Convention took place June 8-11, 1981 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at the Five Seasons Center Complex.
The Convention theme was "GFWC Blueprint-21st Century."
"We no longer make apologies for the cartoon character of the past - shown in a flowered hat, gavel in hand, carrying on the meeting with her mouth open and her mind closed. She has been replaced by the action-packed, midi-skirted, maxi-brained GFWC clubwoman of today - pictured holding a blueprint instead of a tea cup, and the blueprint she holds is the mold for the 21st Century. Today we live with the challenge of the future, and you are at the drawing board." - Marijo Shide.
