Picking a date that works for everyone can be one of the most difficult – but one of the most important – steps in planning a family reunion.
Avoid the obvious busy times of the year. Try not to schedule your family reunion on major holidays, or during prom and graduation season
Ask for suggestions and select a date that will work for everyone.
Communicate plans to host a family reunion far enough in advance that attendees will be able to avoid conflicting events.
Avoid changing the date. Once you announce the date to family members, they will immediately begin planning other activities around it. Changing the date mid-stream, even once, will affect everyone and some guests may be forced to cancel.
