Leadership Columbia Alumni Association


The Leadership Columbia Alumni Association (LCAA) is open to all graduates of the Columbia Chamber’s Leadership Columbia program. Since its inception in 1972, the Chamber has graduated over 2,000 alumni that are now serving the Midlands and communities all over the United States.

The Alumni Association strives to develop skills introduced during the program while also connecting alumni from over four decades of graduates through networking and social opportunities, special events, and a continuing Leadership Series.

In addition, LCAA encourages Leadership Columbia graduates to assume more significant leadership roles in the Midlands by continuing education through programs and forums, offering participation in community service projects, and by maintaining and promoting the network of Leadership Columbia graduates.

This year LCAA is offering two types of memberships: Full Membership and Virtual Only Membership. LCAA’s virtual membership will grant you access to all virtual only events as well as virtual access to keynote speakers for the spring in-person events. The annual membership grants access to all events with an additional fee associated with the Women in Leadership.

All LCAA events are free or discounted for LCAA members and are open to the public for a fee. For more information about the Alumni Association or upcoming events, please contact Hilary Bell.
