Our Board of Directors…

is a group of residents elected by their respective villages.

Guided by a strategic plan, the Board’s mission is centered on advising and directing CA’s leadership on major decisions. The Board also opens the floor to Resident Speakout at the start of every meeting, hearing directly from residents, members and anyone interested in CA on the issues that matter to you.

Description

*CA Board members are typically elected by their respective villages. In the circumstance of resignation, village boards are responsible for appointing a representative to serve out the remainder of the current term.

At CA, we consider ourselves the keepers of Columbia’s vision. Our leadership depends on the direction and guidance of our Board of Directors to ensure we continue to live up to that mission, uphold our strong tradition and adapt to the changing needs of our community.

The Board is responsible for a number of significant decisions, including the annual budget and the hiring of our President/CEO.

The Board is currently guided by a strategic plan the group developed and approved in 2019. That plan prioritizes:

  • Identity
  • Resource Stewardship
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Leadership Development
  • Advocacy

The who, what and when of CA’s Board

CA’s Board is made up of a representative from each village (elected each April). The latest election results can be found here. Members serve either a one- or two-year term, depending upon each village’s bylaws.

Click here to see who currently represents your village.

CA’s President/CEO is a non-voting member of the Board.

The Board meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Click here for a full calendar of meeting dates and times. Every meeting is broadcast live and recorded. You can find that on CA’s Live Stream YouTube page.

 

Have your voice heard

True to the collaborative ideals Columbia was founded on, the Board prioritizes feedback from residents and various resident advisory committees (ranging from ad hoc groups to longer-term committees).

Residents are encouraged to attend board meetings to express their opinions during Resident Speakout. You can learn more about Resident Speakout here.

You can also contact all Board members using this form on our website.
