We remain dedicated to the goal of illuminating the true power of diversity by affording a measure of recognition to the men and women who have made their mark in their professions, occupations, or in service to others in their community. Our publications also serve to record, inspire, and memorialize that history in order to reinforce the impact of their achievements for our readers. Many newcomers and long time residents have come to rely on our annual publications which provide a great resource for networking and reading about the many movers and shakers in their communities. Advertising and sponsorship opportunities are made available to corporations and local firms that seek to promote achievement and diversity and market their services and/or products to a targeted, influential and affluent and professional audience.
