Bringing Alumni Together Around the Table

Becky RasmussenAlumni

Graduates and current participants from across our FOCUS programs gathered on Jan. 10 for another successful round of Alumni Dinners. An alumni favorite, these small-group dinners provide valuable opportunities for conversation and connection in an informal setting. Thank you to all who attended, including alumni from our Leadership St. Louis, Emerging Leaders, Coro Women In Leadership, FOCUS Impact Fellows, Coro Fellows in Public Affairs and Youth Leadership St. Louis programs!

Our next set of All-Alumni Dinners is scheduled for Aug. 13, and registration will open in June. Interested in hosting? Sign up here!

Thank you to our hosts for opening their homes and their tables!
