Join us as we celebrate 50 years of Leadership Columbia. Leadership Columbia is the region’s signature leadership program offered through the Columbia Chamber, graduating over 2,000 professionals since its inception in 1972. Leadership Columbia has nurtured and engaged the leadership skills of current and potential leaders by providing diverse opportunities for professional development, community involvement, and networking.

The 25th Annual Leadership Summit will begin with a Leadership Columbia alumni panel featuring a graduate from each decade. Each panelist will highlight the changes and growth of the program during their time and beyond. Directly following the panel is a keynote featuring Cheryl R. Holland. Founder of Abacus Planning Group, Inc., a holistic financial advisory firm with over $1,700,000,000 in assets under management, Ms. Holland consistently appears on top advisor lists such as Barron’s Top Advisors, Barron’s 100 Top Women Advisors, Financial Times 300.
