Become a Reunions Committee Member

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a Reunions Committee Member. As a leader of your class, you have the power to motivate your classmates to reconnect with UVA and each other. A minimal time commitment is required, and your help will make a tremendous impact on the success of the weekend’s festivities. There are two ways to serve in honor of your Reunion: the Giving Committee and the Outreach Committee.

All Committee Members are expected to:

  • Stay informed throughout the year via email and 1-2 virtual meetings.
  • Serve as a connection point between your class and the University and/or the Alumni Association by sharing feedback and updates in both directions.
  • Have fun at your reunion! (No weekend-of responsibilities)
    • Classes of 1973-1993: June 2-4, 2023
    • Classes of 1998-2018: June 9-11, 2023

You can learn about specific committee responsibilities and join one or both committees below.

Giving Committee Members are expected to:

  • Support the University by making a personal gift to any area of the University during the fiscal year (July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023).
  • Help the University identify classmates who have the capacity to give a leadership gift ($2,500-$20,000+ per year or $1,000+ per year for younger alumni). You do not have to solicit these individuals, but if you can be influential in a gift, we’d love to know!
  • Share a “give back” message with your classmates 2-3 times per year.

Outreach Committee Members are expected to:

  • Connect with friends and classmates throughout the year to build excitement and encourage reunion attendance.
  • Consider hosting a reception during Reunions for a student activity group or CIO that you were part of.

How we celebrate our Committee Members:

One of the perks of serving as a committee member is the opportunity to reconnect with classmates in advance of your Reunion. Many committee members report a deeper sense of engagement and enjoyment during the weekend because of their work as a volunteer in the year prior. In addition to the warm and fuzzy feelings, here’s how we celebrate our committee members:

  • Recognition on the Reunions website
  • Invitation to an exclusive appreciation event during the weekend
  • Special gift at Reunions check-in
  • Credit on your UVA record for volunteer service to the University
