Reunion Committee Tool Kit
What’s the secret to a successful Prep reunion? Reunions involve a committee of class volunteers that organize activities and encourage reunion attendance. To help these volunteers, the Alumni Relations Office has prepared a comprehensive reunion planning toolkit. Use it to help organize your reunion committee, spread the word, and plan events that will wow your classmates.
Step 1: Contact the Alumni Relations Office
These tools are not a substitute for communication between class volunteers and the Prep’s Alumni Relations Office. We are ready, willing, and able to help! Be sure to contact us at 978-774-6727 or visit the Reunion Leadership webpage to express your interest in getting involved.
Step 2: Recruit Classmates for the Committee
An active reunion committee is key to a successful reunion. The more members you have, the easier it will be to invite classmates and reach your reunion attendance goals. Above all, the more committee members you have, the more fun you’ll have planning with your classmates! You’ll find an outline of committee expectations by visiting the Reunion Leadership webpage.
Step 3: Attend the Reunion Committee Kick-Off Meeting
A kick-off meeting will take place on Wed, January 30, 2019, at St. John's Prep. Committee members will hear from Headmaster Ed Hardiman with an inside look at what is happening at the Prep. This meeting also gives committees an opportunity to meet the whole alumni relations team, and develop a reunion timeline to help them stay on track.
Step 4: Develop a Communication Strategy
For many classmates, a reunion may be the first time they have been back to the Prep campus in the last five years. The committee can help re-engage classmates by updating the contact on record in the Alumni Relations Office. Accurate contact information and ongoing communication keeps your class up to date on reunion events. Informed classmates are more likely to attend your reunion!
Step 5: Have Fun!
Joining your class’s reunion leadership can be a rewarding and memorable experience. Many committee members go on to join other leadership opportunities following reunion. They enjoy reconnecting with classmates in an effort to raise support for a place that means so much to them!
