Below you will find a rather detailed list of
duties required of our CCQs, You have seen them before, but periodically I
plan to send them out as a reminder. We depend on each and every one of you
to help keep the class together.
CCQs should be participants. To the extent they
can, they should attend class events, and they should encourage their Company
mates to do the same.
Keep in touch with your Company. Pass on
information on your people to George Sibert for the Class Column and to me for
the twice yearly Newsletter. Get your people together for periodic Company
events or Micro Reunions.
Keep the EXCOM and Jack Downing, CINC Obit current
on deaths of Classmates and Wives.
Remember you are the glue that holds the class
the principle point of contact with your company mates. Be active
in support of class activities, reunions, and projects, and be active
in getting your company mates to participate. Try
and get your company-mates to join the class e-mail
list so communications are easier.
in contact with company mates and their widows and forward any
changes in addresses, phone numbers, etc. to George
Lawton and John Nun for updating the
class master data base and roster.The current roster with addresses and
phone numbers can be found on the class web page at,
<www.west-point.org/class/usma1958/>, which includes the latest
addresses and other data we have on each member of the class, including
the names of classmates who did not graduate with us who we are still
trying to locate. You may also want to try and check the data on
company mates from whom you have not heard from in
some time. The task of maintaining periodic contact
is key to the success of everything else. Some very
successful CCQs collect information from letters, phone calls,
etc. from company mates/widows and then they
periodically share this information with the rest of the company via a message
to those that are on e-mail; or by letter to those who are not.
Provide information of interest to the class scribe for inclusion in
the class notes in the Assembly magazine.
Designate a company mate who lives in the Washington, DC area to be
the company representative, if you do not live in the DC area, or, if
you do,and chose not to be the "DC rep" yourself. In general, this
person will be responsible for telephoning and reminding company mates
in the DC area of luncheons or other class events in the DC area that
may be of interest. If your circumstances change and you do not believe
you can continue to do the job the way you know it needs to be done,
let us know. If you no longer wish to be a CCQ, it
would be helpful to us if you would recruit your
replacement as you know better than we do who in
your Company would be interested and capable of doing the job.
Notify Jack Downing, CINC Obits, or alternatively, a member of the Executive
Committee of the death of a member of the company, or of his
wife or widow. In addition, notify all remaining members of the company
of the death and funeral arrangements by the most expeditious means
(e-mail or phone call). In turn, if we learn of a death first, we will
notify you. We will notify the AOG in accordance with the death SOP
which you will find below.
Obtain a volunteer to prepare in a timely manner a memorial article suitable
for publishing in Assembly magazine on each deceased classmate
by a person(s) who knew him best.
Again, thanks for all your help. You are the glue that holds the
