This year's reunion will begin on July 26th and conclude on August 4th. These activities will consist of class reunions, regional meetings, industry meetings, and a keynote event.

  • Individual Class Reunion – July 26th - July 30th: Class Reunions will kick off the virtual event. The exact date/time is listed below with the registration link.

Facilitators are still needed for many of the class reunions, industry, and regional meetings! Facilitator duties include: communicating with classmates, fellow alumni, and the MPA-EPM staff in planning an agenda for the meeting, being a point of contact for meeting related matters, encouraging your alums to participate, and finally hosting the event. 

If you are interested in helping navigate the session and conversations, encouraging others to take advantage of the time to learn from each other, we would love your assistance!

If you are interested in being a facilitator, please email [email protected]

Please note: You will have to register for each event (keynote, regional, sector/industry, individual class reunions) separately.
