Class secretaries are one of the most important alumni volunteer positions. Secretaries maintain an interest in classmate activities and actively solicit and communicate class member news.
The Class Secretary Toolkit provides information secretaries need to prepare Class Notes columns for Notre Dame Magazine, develop forms of classmate communication, and encourage classmates to update contact information.

Class Notes Guidelines and Deadlines
Notre Dame Magazine is published four times a year and class secretaries are instrumental in obtaining personal and professional updates from classmates. Updates are included in the class notes section of the magazine. Contact Liam Farrell, 574-631-7005, for class notes guidelines, deadlines, and questions about Notre Dame Magazine.
Notre Dame Lawyer Magazine is produced by the Notre Dame Law School and features relevant class notes published in recent editions of Notre Dame Magazine as well as professional class notes announcements listed on the Notre Dame Law School website.
Communicating with Classmates
The University’s secure, online platform, myNotreDame, maintains data integrity, respects the privacy of our alumni, and follows alumni relations best practices while providing an opportunity for classmates to communicate with each other. Class secretaries can search and send e-mails to specific classmates using the online directory. The Alumni Association and Law School Alumni Relations are rolling out a Law Class Groups platform during 2012-13. Stay tuned for more information.
Notre Dame Law School alumni can also network with peers by registering for the Professional and Alumni Notre Dame Lawyers LinkedIn Account.
Updating Classmate Contact Information
Class secretaries play an important role in encouraging classmates to keep their contact information accurate and up-to- update in myNotreDame. Through the secure community, classmates can contact other alumni, join a club, or search for peers by specific fields of law. To use myNotreDame classmates need to register and create a password. For help setting up an account, contact the Alumni Association at 574-631-1579.
Class secretaries sometimes receive unfortunate news regarding the death of a classmate. The Law School appreciates your assistance in making us aware of death notices. Contact email@example.com for more information.
