2017 Reunion Planning Workshop

Volunteer Conference 2016

The Alumnae Association will cover the costs of your class president and up to two reunion chairs (classes ending in 2 or 7 and 2015) to attend the conference. If these officers cannot attend, please submit an alternative to Janet Glick, director of classes and reunion, by September 2, 2016. Other members of your class board are welcome to attend, but their travel expenses must be covered by the class or the individual volunteer. Overnight accommodations for these additional class board members will be billed to your class treasury, so please inform your treasurer.
