If you’re one of Brown’s 600+ elected or appointed class leaders you’re automatically a member of the Association of Class Leaders (ACL), and the ACL Board of Advisors is here to help you!

What is the ACL?

The ACL works to keep alumni engaged in the Brown community, while the ACL Board of Advisors—elected by the ACL—upholds the very best of Brown’s spirit and traditions and supports class volunteers (e.g., class presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, treasurers, webmasters, communications managers, etc.) through mentoring, training, and by providing the tools that class leaders need to lead effectively.

Become a Class Leader

Support Brown and stay connected with your class by getting involved with your class leadership. Class leader elections are held every five years in the spring following your Reunion. Terms begin on July 1 and end June 30.

Want to get involved? Learn more about class leadership positions.

Reach Out on Facebook and Instagram

You can keep in touch with other class leaders on the ACL Facebook page and Instagram account where you'll find direct access to an online community of volunteers with decades of collective experience. Need some ideas for class engagement on your class social media channels? The ACL Facebook page and Instagram account are your one stop resource! Feel free to start a conversation thread on any volunteer-related topic such as event planning and communicating with classmates.
