Long Island Press Power List Announced

The most influential leaders who make Long Island a great place to live, work and play in will be honored for their contributions at the 20th annual Long Island Press Power List celebration on June 29.

The 2023 Power Listers of Long Island will be honored during the highly anticipated annual event at the Heritage Club in Bethpage, which will welcome more than 300 people who will enjoy the ultimate networking and celebratory evening. 

“The Long Island Press Power List is a most highly anticipated event of the year,” said Elizabeth Aloni, senior vice president of Schneps Media Events. “Long Island is where the Power List originated. It has now grown to include Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the East End. We look forward to honoring these powerful change makers and celebrating their ongoing commitment to Long Island and those who live and work on the Island.”
