REunion hosts

Each year, the office of alumni relations looks for representatives from each reunion year to be a Reunion Host. The Class Reunion Host (or co-host) serves as the key volunteer for his/her class in preparation for their class reunion and Homecoming Weekend. The Class Reunion Host serves as the primary representative for each class and maintains communication with the office of alumni relations throughout the year. All reunions who wish to hold a gathering outside of the Hanoverfest tent will need to rent tents, chairs, and tables. The cost will be added to the cost of the registration for that reunion. Providing your own pop-up tents and lawn chairs are a great alternative to renting the equipment.

Some of the specific responsibilities of the Class Reunion Host include the following:

  • Lend your name/signature to the reunion letters sent by the Office of Alumni Relations
  • Lend your name/signature to promote Impact Hanover Day
  • Generate and send personalized email and letters. The Office of Alumni Relations will be able to provide you with a class list
  • Communicate with classmates over the course of the year to generate enthusiasm for your reunion
  • Suggest faculty to be a guest speaker at your reunion (for milestone reunions only)
  • Plan a program agenda for your reunion, if desired. (for milestone reunions only)
  • Arrive before the beginning of your reunion event(s) and greet classmates and guests
  • Use of social media is encouraged
  • Work with Miranda Maxwell, Senior Director of Development, on messaging about reunion giving in communications with classmates
