With a growing number of Momentum graduates and a small Momentum office team, we rely heavily on the help of Class Captains. Our Class Captains help us to:
- Keep their Momentum friends engaged by organizing class events throughout the year
- Pass on Momentum news, volunteer opportunities, membership drives, and donation requests
- Keep Momentum informed of life changes, milestones, and changes to contact information for their classmates
Momentum provides Class Captains with an up-to-date class contact list, sample emails for communication, and discounts to select Momentum events.
Arranging Events for your Class
Passing on Momentum News
From time to time Class Captains receive an email from the Momentum office with instructions for relaying the information to the class via personal email or phone calls. The personal touch really helps get the message through.
Keeping Momentum Informed
One thing we can say for sure about Momentum women is that, by definition, they never sit still! That can make it hard for our office to keep track of promotions, changes to contact information, celebratory milestones and tough times when our alumnae may need extra support. Class Captains help us fill that gap.
