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!
Association of Class Leaders
Brown’s community of alumni class officers.
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 committees are recruited and formed every five years in the spring following your Reunion. Committee service begins on July 1 and ends on June 30.

Helpful Resources for Class Leaders
Reach out on Facebook and Instagram
Keep in touch with other class leaders on the ACL Facebook page and Instagram account and find direct access to an online community of volunteers with decades of collective experience. Need some ideas for engagement on your class social media channels? These are your one-stop resource! Feel free to start a conversation thread on any volunteer-related topic such as event planning or communicating with classmates.
Virtual Engagement Toolkit
Developed by the Alumni Relations staff, the Virtual Engagement Toolkit will help you plan, organize, and execute virtual class activities.
ACL Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Calendar
Developed by the ACL’s DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion) Committee, this calendar provides information about cultural, religious, and secular holidays and events across diverse groups. We hope this information will be a useful resource for class leaders as they plan activities and events throughout the year to engage their classmates. View detailed instructions for how to subscribe to the DEI Calendar (PDF).

ACL Class Leader Mentoring
Would you or your class leadership team like some one-on-one mentorship on a specific area of class leadership? Perhaps some guidance on class engagement, communication, or virtual events? To find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to your alumni relations liaison to be connected with an ACL Mentor.
