ALUMNI ASSOCIATION INTRODUCES NEW CLASS LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE At a meeting of newly elected class officers at the Edina Country Club on February 26, 2011, the Gustavus Alumni Association introduced a new class leadership structure to serve the current and future needs of the College and its alumni. The new Class Officer model is speciﬁcally designed to substantially increase and sustain alumni engagement, participation, and support for mission-central work of the College. Class officer positions are now being ﬁlled, and the new program will be officially launched September 30, 2011, during Homecoming Weekend—a date that also coincides with the opening of the College’s Sesquicentennial Celebration. In January of 2011, at the recommendation of the Classes Committee of the Alumni Association Board of Directors, the Board formally adopted a new class leadership structure to build on the Class Agent program that began in 1954. Class officers will provide the College a large but workable corps of volunteers who are interested in their classmates and the College’s future. Class officer positions include president, communications chair, annual fund chair, reunion chair/vice president, and student recruitment chair. The structure will increase engagement opportunities for alumni. Alumni interested in serving as a class officer or pursuing other volunteer engagement opportunities should contact the Office of Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
