Being a class officer is a great way to reconnect to the university and old classmates. Please consider volunteering your time and helping the Class of 1999. You can sculpt the future of the Class of 1999 by helping to connect our classmates to each other and Cornell.

Class Officers plan and implement activities that keep you and our classmates in touch. It's a modest time commitment over the next five years and you're working with the Cornell staff and our class leaders. Please click on the class officer roles for a description of the different positions. Of course, the Cornell staff, other officers, and past officers will assist you.
