As a Haverford alumnus/a, you are a member of Haverford's Alumni Association. No membership dues required.

The AAEC consists of a president, vice president, regional and affinity group liaisons, and liaisons to various College departments.
The Annual Fund Leadership Committee (AFLC) consists of a select group of annual giving advocates. As the College’s primary ambassadors for the Annual Fund, members of the AFLC work to strengthen philanthropic relationships between Haverford and its alumni and, in collaboration with the Haverford College staff, are responsible for increasing alumni giving to the Annual Fund.
Annual Fund Volunteers serve as primary liaisons between the College and everyone who identifies with an individual class or affinity group. In collaboration with Haverford College staff, Volunteers are responsible for increasing participation in the Annual Fund by cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding classmates and other alumni for gifts.

Class correspondents help us keep the Class News section of Haverford magazine robust and relevant by soliciting updates from their classmates three times a year. Class Correspondents are a critical link in maintaining the strong sense of community that exists among Haverford alumni and in establishing links with classmates who have lost contact with the College.
As a class correspondent, you will be asked to:
Gather news from your classmates and report it accurately.
Write three updates per year, gathering the news you’ve solicited.
File your updates in a timely fashion.
Attempt to make contact with, and solicit news from, every member of your class who appears on the list provided by the College.
We are always looking for new spaces for alumni events in major cities. If you're willing to host an alumni or networking event at your home or workplace, please let us know.
Regional Volunteers help to plan happy hours, alumni panels, service projects, athletic events, affinity gatherings, and other alumni activities across the country. Each year, volunteers are active in cities including but not limited to Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and San Francisco. If you're not in one of these cities, we welcome volunteers to plan events in their local areas, and Alumni and Parent Relations will be happy to help get you started.
