  • Class officers are elected by slate for five-year terms. The Class Officer positions are President, Reunion Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Digital Media Coordinator, and Smith Fund Team Coordinator. Our Smith Fund Coordinator works with Fund Agents, Special Gifts Chair and Memorial Chair on the Smith Fund Team. These Class Officers form the Executive Committee, which has the power to act for the class between Reunions.
  • The Executive Committee of Class Officers is expected to communicate regularly and meet on an annual basis. The President is responsible for organizing these communications, which can be held at an agreed–upon location or via conference call.
  • All Class Officers are expected to make annual gifts to the Smith Fund.
  • Upon election, each officer should obtain all files and records from the previous officer, and upon completion of their term in office, transfer all files and records to their successor.
