Columbia Association (CA) has convened a Millennials Work Group tasked with identifying opportunities to engage with community members in this age group and highlight ways to attract them to stay in Columbia, engage in civic life and to assess how CA can engage and serve them better.

The Millennials Work Group is made up of 15 community members between the ages of 17 and 35 who live, work, study, or come to play in Columbia. The workgroup met in February of this year to kick off the project. A summary of that meeting and future meetings is provided below.

CA wishes to extend its gratitude to everyone who expressed interest in serving in this workgroup. We received a robust and enthusiastic response to our solicitation.  While the application process to serve in the workgroup is now closed, please check back here for project updates and announcements of future public engagement opportunities that will be held as this project continues over the next year.
