Are you interested in running for Class Agent? Please see the guidelines and pre-election documents.
Each organized Class of former students have elected Class Agents (5 person team) who serve as liaisons between their Class and The Association. Class Agents are first elected during the student body elections of their junior year and serve through a six-year term. New Class Agents are elected each succeeding five years either during the Class Reunion or through online elections. Should an elected Class Agent be unable to complete his/her term of office, the Senior Class President, a previous Class Agent or approved replacement should serve until the next Class Reunion or election. Class Agents work closely with The Association’s Class Programs team to plan Reunions that are held on campus and across the state, and to maintain contact with Classmates through Class newsletters and web communications.
Through Class fundraising efforts, former students provide support for Association programs and projects, scholarships and other gifts to Texas A&M. The Association’s Class Programs team manages and supports the Class Agents and all Class-sponsored activities.
Our staff also organizes and promotes the 50th Class Reunion held each spring as well as the annual Sul Ross Group Reunion for all Classes who have graduated at least 55 years ago.
