Commitment: Five-year term

Hours per week: Flexible

Position description: Class officers are the individuals who help keep their classes connected with Mount Allison. Officers will work with the Alumni Relations Office to help their class stay involved and engaged with the University. This may include sending letters and e-mails to classmates, or maintaining a class web page.

Class officers serve as the contact for their class, help with organizing the class reunions, and assist with class projects.

The secretary will take initiative around correspondence to the class. They will maintain an accurate and updated contact list, as well as foster opportunities for alumni to communicate with each other.

Criteria:

  • Must demonstrate leadership ability
  • Must have strong interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills
  • Must be comfortable with use of social media

Contact: The Class officer (secretary) will work closely with the alumni services co-ordinator, the other class officers, and Reunion volunteers.

Training: All class officers will be provided with training in appropriate areas before taking the positions.

Application: All class officers will be elected at their class meeting, held every five years during Reunion.

Note: Class officers have been a part of Mount A tradition for at least 100 years, and the change from "Life Class Officers" to a five-year commitment has been made to adapt to the current needs and desires of alumni and ensure the continued success of this program. Officers will continue to be elected upon their graduation and can be re-elected at their class meeting during Reunion.
