Alumni Events

FOCUS graduates leave our leadership programs with a diverse network of fellow alumni they can tap into for ideas, support and collaboration. We help strengthen these networks, while giving alumni the chance to continue their learning and civic engagement, through a number of events throughout the year.

From regular alumni dinners to volunteering at program selection days to special learning opportunities, there are many ways stay connected to FOCUS and meet other alumni.

You can also take your engagement to the next level by becoming a FOCUS member!

For questions about alumni events and programming, contact Katie Carpenter, Associate Director of Member & Alumni Relations, at (314) 657-4033 or by email
