~ Class Agent Job Description ~
Class Agents are essential to the success of any alumni program. Through their efforts, classmates
stay in touch with each other and the School. Class Agent activities include the following:
❖ Track addresses and telephone numbers of classmates and notify the School by phone or e-mail.
❖ Gather news and updates for the alumni notes section of the Forman Letter and pass the
information on to the School.
❖ Help the School find “lost” alumni. Often, you will know where he/she are long before we do.
❖ Notify school/classmates when a member of your class passes away.
❖ Have a presence on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.) and keep up-to-date with school happenings, events, etc., to share with other alumni.
❖ Assist with and try to attend regional receptions.
❖ Encourage classmates to support the Annual Fund via a class letter or a phone call/e-mail.
Make a gift of your own - it’s easier to ask others to contribute when you have already given.
❖ Suggest classmates who could be resources for campus programs.
❖ Provide Admissions Office with names of student(s) who might want to attend Forman
❖ Obtain a current class list from the Advancement Office so you can begin contacting your class
to encourage attendance. If there are “lost” alums, divide up the list among committee members and
see if you can locate them.
❖ As you get nearer the reunion, continue making calls to classmates. Often you’ll find that
people want to know who else is coming before they make a decision to attend.
❖ Attend Class Agent meetings at Alumni Weekend.
❖ As a Class Agent, you are given personal contact information for your classmates. We ask that
you do not share or distribute this information with anyone.
