The main reason to pay your dues is to acknowledge the major influence that the Class and the University have had on our personal and professional lives. On a practical level, our dues help to cover class expenses such as:
- Funding our PAW subscription
- The 600-page full-color Class of 1971 50th Reunion Class Yearbook
- Subsidizing regional and class events
- Ongoing costs of the Class website
- A Zoom account to be used by groups within our class to stay in touch
- The infrastructure for our Virtual 50th Class Reunion
- Covering some of the cost of reunions
- Supporting the Alumni Council
The dues payments and participation the Class received this year were the largest on record. Approximately 40% of our class (290 out of 718) paid our dues. We look forward to the 50th Reunion Class Yearbook and future class activities that are funded by these dues payments.
What is the dues amount for the Class of 1971?
The standard dues amount is $100. Many classmates have generously contributed more than this amount. Conversely, for those who find it difficult to make this contribution, we would love to have you contribute any amount that you can. We are most interested in maximum participation.
Incidentally, we have been advised that, the first $12 of your dues payment is related to the PAW mailings and is not tax deductible. The remainder of your dues payment is tax deductible.
