Each graduating class selects a group of officers to serve a few immediate functions and one future function. It is time to select those officers. The three officers are President, Vice-President, and Secretary. The immediate functions are three: 1) helping to plan the Commencement Worship and Commencement Communion services, 2) supporting the Class Agents in their work on behalf of class gifts to the Divinity School (the Class Agents are appointed by the Offices of Development and Alumni/ae Affairs), and 3) providing leadership during the Commencement ceremonies themselves. The future function is one: facilitating communication and reunion planning among class members as a distinct alumnae/i group of the school in the years after graduation.
Nominations for class officers may be submitted to me between now and the end of next week. The deadline for nominations is the end of the day on Friday, March 3rd. Please have the agreement of the person you are nominating before submitting their name. Nominations should be sent to me via email at email@example.com. I will acknowledge each nomination with a message of reply, so please verify that I received your nomination. If an election is required to choose officers from among a group of nominees, the election will be held upon our return to campus following Spring Break.
Many thanks to you all. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. In the meantime, Godspeed and abundant mercies for you and all that fills your lives in these days of completion and transition. With much love and gratitude for you all. Peace, Dale Peterson
