What does FOCUS do?

We educate leaders.

We are the region’s premier leadership organization, preparing diverse leaders to work cooperatively for a thriving St. Louis region.

We connect leaders.

We strive to represent the diversity of our region, connecting participants from across counties, sectors, industries, backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and beliefs.

We facilitate the important conversations.

We engage citizens to deliberate on critical regional community issues in a trusted, nonpartisan space.
