Reunion Volunteers

MBA Class Reunion

Volunteering for Reunion

Volunteers are the key to creating a Reunion Weekend that is vibrant, enjoyable, and memorable.

As a volunteer, you are asked to serve a 9-month term on a joint class reunion committee (with representatives from each different MBA program that graduated in a specific year). 

You and your committee will drive the success of Reunion in two ways:

1) Helping to inspire programming that appeals to the specific interests of your class

2) Reaching out to classmates to encourage them to come back to the Carlson School to celebrate

 

Expectations

LEAD by example. Attend Reunion Weekend and make your own gift of any size that is meaningful to you to support Carlson students, faculty, and staff.  Come back, give back!

PLAN your Reunion.  Your input and guidance will determine topics for lifelong learning panels, what kind of speakers will present, and what your Saturday evening class dinner will look like.

CONNECT with classmates.  At three points during your term, you will personally reach out to at least ten classmates to connect with them, raise awareness of Reunion, and encourage attendance.

STAY IN TOUCH.  Reunion committee work and outreach efforts are much more effective when you stay in touch with staff and other volunteers. It will make your committee a stronger team and inspire you to own your reunion!

 

What You Can Expect From Us

Unique access and benefits: In recognition of your efforts, we want to thank you with insider knowledge of/access to Carlson happenings as well as reduced rates to attend your reunion.

Active communication: Just like we expect you to stay in touch, you deserve prompt and helpful communications from the Alumni Relations staff. That is our promise to you.

Logistical support: We will provide you the tools to make it as easy as possible to plan your reunion and reach out to classmates.
