Get Involved...

We would love you to get more involved with our class!

 The easiest way is to become a class life member, or even just attend reunion! If you'd like to do more, here's how.

Plan a Mini-Reunion:
We're always looking for people to host mini-reunions. You can host a gathering at a restaurant, a park, or anywhere else you'd like to see a group of Wellesley women - even your own home! If you'd like to get started planning a mini-reunion in your area, contact Caroline McGregor.

Volunteer for Reunion:
If you would like to help plan our 15-year Reunion in 2016, please contact Anne van Grondelle.

Become a Class Officer:
Class officer's terms are five years. Officers are elected at a class meeting each reunion, and their term lasts until the end of the following reunion. This means we'll be looking for a new exec board in 2016. If you're interested, check out the Class Volunteer Resources page on the Alumnae Association's website, and stay tuned for more information about how you can be nominated for a class officer position.

If you are interested, stay tuned for an announcement in 2015 from the Class Nominating Chairif you would like to nominate yourself or a classmate to the next slate of officers.
