Can we talk?

Columbia Association represents different things to different people, and for more than 50 years the organization has been a fundamental part of what makes living in, working in and visiting Columbia great. But we’re ready to take a fresh look at things, and help start a large and robust conversation about the community as a whole, including (but not limited to) CA’s role in it.

There’s a lot to talk about, and as with any conversation, we’re going to see where it takes us. We don’t know where that will be, but we’d like as many voices to participate as possible.

This is not just about Columbia Association, so we’re taking this conversation to a different location, and have created a separate website at so we can focus on this discussion and share what we discover. We invite everyone who wants to be heard, or who wants to just listen, to join us online and at a range of locations and events throughout the community where we can explore different topics and gather as many inputs as we can.

If you’ve got any questions in the meantime, you can send me an email at the address below, and I’ll do my best to get back to you quickly.

Looking forward to speaking with you very soon.

Tim Pinel, Director of Communications & Marketing
