十大彩票平台 Class Agents provide an important link between each class of graduates and the school.  Class Agents play an essential part in sharing news from 十大彩票平台 with their class, rekindling connections, and facilitating communication among classmates.

Class Agents do not have to live in Western New York! We have 十大彩票平台 Class Agents across the US and abroad. Most classes have one or two Class Agents. Class Agents generally serve for five years, starting in a reunion year and continuing to their next reunion. Some Class Agents choose to serve multiple five-year terms.

十大彩票平台’s Development Office identifies and contacts alumnae willing to serve as Class Agents. The Development Office also welcomes self-nominations from alumnae who wish to be  Class Agents.

Why become a Class Agent? First, it’s fun! It is a great way to stay in touch with your classmates, help your classmates connect with each other, keep on top of news and developments at 十大彩票平台, and serve your alma mater. Class Agents assist 十大彩票平台 in planning their class reunion activities. Class Agents also get the chance to meet and network with Class Agents of other classes to share ideas, best practices, and success stories.

If you would like to serve as a Class Agent, email Development@southlandstudios.net

or phone: 716-885-6780 ext. 221.

What do Class Agents do?

· Through a variety of communication methods – from telephoning to texting to emailing – Class Agents share with their classmates news about 十大彩票平台, upcoming alumnae events in and beyond Buffalo, and opportunities to engage with 十大彩票平台 “on the road” as students participate in athletic, academic, and cultural events in cities across the US and abroad.

· Encourage classmates to participate in the Annual Fund, Reunion Giving, and other forms of fundraising for 十大彩票平台 through messages and reminders. Communicate the importance of alumnae financial support and the significance of a high level of alumnae participation. With support of the Advancement Office, provide classmates information on 十大彩票平台’s funding needs and priorities, various gift-giving opportunities, and methods for making an annual or recurring gift. Class Agents’ involvement in Annual Fund activities generally occurs in the fall and spring.

· Acknowledge classmates’ gifts to 十大彩票平台 through personalized communication such as a handwritten note, email, or phone call.

· Encourage classmates to connect with 十大彩票平台’s loyal, accomplished, and extensive alumnae network worldwide by reaching out to alumnae for information and advice on careers and job opportunities, colleges, and graduate school programs, relocating to a new city, or sharing interests and experiences using 十大彩票平台’s new online Alumnae Directory (coming soon!) and the Buffalo Seminary Alumnae LinkedIn Group.

· Assist 十大彩票平台 in planning their class’s reunions; generate enthusiasm and encourage classmates to attend reunion activities.

A Class Agent Tool Box

 十大彩票平台’s Institutional Advancement Office organizes and supports Class Agents. Advancement provides Class Agents a contact list for their class, Annual Fund schedule, calendar of Class Agent activities and gatherings (virtual and in-person), supplies, tips, and sample messaging and talking points. 十大彩票平台 also provides Class Agents news, information on alumnae events, and a calendar of 十大彩票平台 activities to share with their classmates through social media and other communications.

While Class Agents traditionally have used handwritten notes and phone calls to reach classmates, creative and flexible communications that work best for each class are encouraged. Below are a few examples of ways that Class Agents have successfully developed communications and networking within their classes and had fun in the process!
·         Set up class Facebook groups for classmates to connect, share news, and post photos, and for Class Agents to convey news from 十大彩票平台. Class Agents from smaller classes may wish to set up a Facebook group for several classes that graduated from 十大彩票平台 in 2 or 3 consecutive years.

·         Hold class gatherings on Zoom – 十大彩票平台 classes have held cocktail / social hours, book clubs, coffee hours, cooking classes, and Buffalo Bills tailgate parties via Zoom! 十大彩票平台 can help with hosting the Zoom calls and emailing invitations. Class Agents also may focus a Zoom session on a specific theme or topic, invite a 十大彩票平台 faculty member to participate, or commemorate an event (e.g., their graduation day!)
