-- Periodically contact each classmate and class widow in your company and verify data and changes to the information in the Class Register, November 2006, and the subsequent quarterly changes/updates posted on the class website.


-- For classmates, non-grads, and class widows whose personal data or whereabouts are unknown undertake a search via various means and report results to the Class Secretary/Data Base Manager. The Class Secretary/Data Base manager will provide names in your Company from time to time who fit this category along with suggested search mechanisms and data sources.

We need to have a bio on every classmate toward having a complete class history through reunion books etc, retained by the USNA library as a branch of the National archives. The Class Secretary will provide the names for the missing bios for you to pursue.


Provide Information On, and Encourage Participation in, Class Activities


-- Follow up, following formal class announcements, via phone, e-mail, etc. as a reminder and to encourage attendance at mini-reunions and other class functions -- national and local -- especially on non- or late registrations for the major ( 5-year) reunions.
