How can we engage the ~ 300 classmates who are not active?

How can we reach out and re-engage the ~ 300 of our fellow classmates who have not been participating in class activities? How can we draw them in and get them to rejoin us at our 50th Reunion?

This has been an increasingly common topic at Homecomings, class executive committee meetings, and at class officers weekends. Many of us are increasingly aware of the fact that time - and our ability to do things - are not infinite. Many of us note that our circle of close Dartmouth friends are NOT primarily from our undergraudate years, but are classmates (and their families) we have met and bonded with at class events. Often these are people we don't remember knowing as undergraduates. Some of us have been alienated by Dartmouth at some point in the past, and this acts as a barrier to connecting with classmates.

Does this apply to you or to anyone you know? What can we do about it?
