Description

Columbia’s nine villages and Town Center are organized into 10 Village Community Associations that work for you. In April, residents in each of the associations elect representatives to their village boards, which direct the business affairs of the associations, as well as a representative to the Columbia Council to serve as the 10 members of Columbia Association (CA). Columbia Association is a nonprofit public benefit organization, created to nurture the Columbia vision and to enhance the quality of life for people living and working here. The council elects itself to serve as CA’s Board of Directors, which is the governing body of CA. CA’s president is the eleventh member of the board.

CA’s Board of Directors is the final authority on all matters regarding Columbia Association. CA’s board reviews policy and budget matters develop strategic initiatives, addresses community issues and appoints CA’s president, who oversees a team of approximately 1,300 professionals who carry out the day-to-day operations. Columbia Association provides a variety of amenities, including 40 recreational and community facilities, 3,600 acres of permanent open space, 94 miles of pathways, more than 170 tot lots and several parks. Howard County Government provides other services, including trash collection, local highway maintenance, snow removal, police and fire protection, libraries and public schools.

As it develops its policies and priorities, CA’s Board solicits advice from residents and resident advisory committees. The advisory committees, which are appointed by CA’s board with specific charges, ranging from ad hoc groups to longer-term committees, such as the Financial Management Committee or the Architectural Resource Committee. Residents are encouraged to attend board meetings to express their opinions during Resident Speakout. The meetings are held at CA Headquarters, 6310 Hillside Court, Suite 100 in Columbia. Meeting notices and agendas are posted in advance at all CA facilities and on this page.

Through an ongoing strategic planning process, CA’s board and Columbia Association senior professional team work together to systematically identify and address those issues that are most important to the community, and its continuing well-being. If you would like to be involved, please contact CA’s Board or members of your village board with your concerns.

CA’s Board of Directors holds meetings twice a month, on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Meetings are held in the CA Headquarters Boardroom,  6310 Hillside Court, Suite 100, Columbia, MD 21046.

Meeting agendas, minutes, podcasts and videos are posted below. Please note that video recordings of Board of Director meetings are not available for meetings prior to June 2017.
