Since 1905, members of the Cornell Association of Class Officers (CACO) have effectively led their class organizations by engaging classmates, planning Reunions, hosting events, recognizing volunteers, and raising money for class-designated Cornell initiatives.
Class officers serve five-year terms to build class membership, oversee treasuries, and engage classmates through communications and diverse programming.
Every Cornell class, although they span more than seventy-five years in age, has the same goal in mind — to connect classmates by rekindling memories of days on the Hill while providing support of today’s Cornell.
Cornell Reunion is the most highly attended and anticipated annual alumni event that is planned by volunteer class officers.
Almost every alumni class has a designated fund to support deserving students and Cornell initiatives. Cornell designated class funds are considered gifts to the university and are tax-deductible.
The Cornell Association of Class Officers (CACO) Board represents the most experienced and engaged volunteer class leaders who serve Cornell.
New and seasoned class officers can find everything they need to be successful, including information on officer roles and responsibilities, class communications, class dues and treasuries, events and Reunion, and more!
