Non-Reunion Class Officers' Information and FAQs (Handbook)

On behalf of the Alumnae/i Board of Directors and the Office of Alumnae/i Relations, thank you for volunteering for your class and for Wheaton.  Class Volunteers are a vital part of the Wheaton Alumnae/i Association.  As the chosen leaders of your classmates, the Alumnae/i Association and the college will look to you to help foster a sense of connection between your classmates and to encourage them to stay connected with Wheaton.  You will also be charged with educating your classmates about Wheaton today and with maintaining class spirit between reunion years.  As you can see, being a class officer is a big job, but it can also be a lot of fun and very rewarding. 

This Class Officers’ Handbook is designed to answer questions you may have regarding class officer responsibilities, event planning and communication with your classmates.  A separate Reunion Information and FAQs is available for class officers entering a reunion year.  Please read this handbook carefully and contact the Alumnae/i Office with any questions or feedback.

The Alumnae/i Board of Directors and the Alumnae/i Relations staff are ready to assist you in any way we can. 

Thank you for volunteering for Wheaton!
