Jeffersonian Dinners Interest Form

  • Sign up now to receive an invitation to one of our upcoming FOCUS Jeffersonian-style dinners.


    Based on the concept popularized in Jeffrey Walker's TEDTalk and similar dinners held around the country, these events will bring together a small group of FOCUS members to share a meal and personal perspectives on a single topic. Each dinner's guest list will be a curated grouping of diverse attendees intended to create thoughtful conversation while forging new connections.

    • Participation in these dinners is limited to current dues-paying FOCUS members. Join/renew now! There is no cost and your meal will be provided.
    • If selected for a dinner, you will receive an invitation by email at least 3 weeks prior to the date. If you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may offer this opportunity to someone else.
    • Each dinner throughout the year will be limited to 14 guests. If you do not receive an invitation to the first dinner, your name will be kept in the pool for future dinner invitations.
    • If you accept a dinner invitation and are a no-call, no-show on evening of the dinner, your name will be removed from the invitation pool for the remainder of the year.
