In 2020, the Club launched the Movers and Shakers Alumni group, a networking group for past recipients of the award. Since 2007, the Club has recognized 375 individuals with this award. Alumni events are hosted each quarter and are organized by the Club President. As a hard-working and motivated group of individuals, we aim to create exclusive opportunities centered around networking and career development as on-going value for award recipients. We want the Movers and Shakers award to be more than just a one-day event, we want it to be a community that you can turn to for career connections, advice, and mentorship. We are the future leaders of our community so we believe we should work together to build each other up and help each other succeed. 

Ways to get involved as a Movers and Shakers Alumni:

·         Attend quarterly networking events to meet some of the 375 award winners

·         Encourage other young professionals to apply for the annual Movers and Shakers Award

·         Attend our annual Stuff the Stocking fundraiser to give back and attend our 100+ events each year
