Reunion Committee Roles

Reunion Committee Roles

 

Reunion Committee Chair The Reunion Committee Chair will organize our reunion. She sets the vision and tone for the class portion of reunion weekend and is the primary contact for the Alumnae Association. She is responsible for recruiting committee chairs and members, setting the budget with the treasurer, chairing planning meetings, and keeping the committee connected, motivated, and ready for the fun that is reunion! She will receive training at the Alumnae Leadership Council in the fall of 2018. The current class officers and the Alumnae Association staff will provide the Reunion Committee Chair with support throughout her term.
Treasurer The treasurer discusses and decides the budget with the Reunion chair in the September before Reunion. She maintains a bank account, reimburses classmates, and pays any Reunion vendor bills such as the caterer.
Dorm Coordinator The dorm coordinator creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere at each class headquarters. Along with a committee, she decorates the residence hall, which may include hanging the class banner, hanging other decorations, and setting up the welcome table. She also staffs the welcome table with classmates for peak hours during Reunion weekend. She may need to discuss record book and insignia distribution in the residence halls with the respective chairs.
Program Chair The program chair works with the Reunion chair to determine the type and amount, if any, of class-specific programming such as lectures, discussion groups, concerts, other performances, or outside entertainment. She may recruit a committee if the class plans extensive programming for the weekend.
Social Hour/Alcohol Chair The social hour chair organizes the social hours on Friday and Saturday evening. She determines what the event will entail, coordinates with the alcohol vendor, and perhaps a caterer. She hires the bartender for both nights and works with the Saturday dinner chair to coordinate their alcohol order as well.
Saturday Dinner Chair The Saturday dinner chair makes the arrangements for the Saturday class dinner. This may include choosing a theme, hiring a caterer, deciding on a menu, working with the social hour chair on the alcohol order, determining if there should be entertainment, and working with the Alumnae Association.
Sunday Picnic Chair The Sunday picnic chair makes the arrangements for the Sunday class picnic. This may include choosing a theme, hiring a caterer, deciding on a menu, determining if there should be entertainment, and working with the Alumnae Association.
Insignia Chair The insignia chair chooses an item in the class color classmates can carry or wear in the Alumnae Parade.
Parade Marshal The parade marshal submits a class cheer to the Reunion chair for copying and distribution to classmates. She helps carry the banner and leads the class in cheering during the Alumnae Parade.
Record Book Chair The Record Book Chair will oversee the production of our first Class Record Book. What is a Class Record Book, you ask? It’s a collection of reflections and contact information that is published every five years. In it typically you can write whatever you like: a short script, a rant, a completely made up story about your post-graduation life, or how you feel about brunch. The Record Book Chair is responsible for recruiting committee members, choosing the medium (print, electronic, or both), soliciting and collecting entries, and delivering the final product. The current class officers and the Alumnae Association staff will provide the Reunion Book Chair with support throughout her term.
