FOCUS convenes a free public forum each month on issues of immediate and long-range concern in Central New York and beyond. Forums often are held in the morning on the third Friday of the month in the atrium of City Hall Commons, 201 E. Washington St., Syracuse. Time and location vary. You can check here for news of the NEXT FORUM.
Each year FOCUS with University College of Syracuse University offers a free eight-week academy for people who live or work in Onondaga County and want to learn more about local government. The class meets each week with public officials to learn how decisions are made from those who have to make them. The dialogue over dinner is informative for both the citizens and officials participating. More than 400 people have graduated from the academy. LEARN MORE HERE.
FOCUS celebrates and honors community leaders whose continual caring and understanding of the vision for tomorrow has been an inspiration. FOCUS celebrates them at the sole fund-raiser for the year. LEARN MORE AT THIS LINK.
