Alumni Dinners

Date(s) - October 23, 2024
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an evening of conversation and connection!

Our FOCUS Alumni Dinners offer a unique opportunity to connect with other leaders in an informal setting. Simultaneous small dinners of 6-10 people will be held across the region in alumni homes giving you a chance to meet graduates from other classes and programs for an evening of engaging dialogue. These dinners are open to all graduates and current participants in our FOCUS leadership programs.

Registration for the fall 2024 alumni dinners will open on Monday, Aug. 12, and space is limited!

These dinners would not be possible without the support of our generous alumni hosts who open their homes and provide a meal. When registering, please mark ALL dinners you would be willing/able to attend. (We recommend selecting at least 2-3.) Once dinners are confirmed, you will be contacted by your host with additional details, including the address and directions.
