Is your class reunion committee ready

Long before your committee sets out to conquer a mountain of planning tasks, each team member must honestly access their ability, willingness, and capacity to commit to the task at hand.  Months prior to the fun-filled weekend (or week!), the planning committee must orchestrate:

  • Announcements
  • Lodging
  • Food and Beverage Support
  • Entertainment
  • Marketing
  • Awards & Presentations
  • Prizes
  • Ancillary Events
  • Budgets

To ensure the greatest participation and success of a reunion effort, the best-structured committees begin planning 12-18 months beforehand.  That said, when the committee possesses the traits of an effective team, they can create a memorable experience by maximizing time, talent and tenacity.

In his article, The Seven Traits of Effective Teams, Aaron Stannard brilliantly captures the elements of a high-functioning team.

They are:

  • Great Communication
  • Extensive Collaboration
  • Full of Initiative
  • Visionary
  • Able to Adapt
  • Constructive
  • Organized

To that end, if your committee’s effectiveness is not becoming to you; you should be coming to an Event Planner!
