LEADERSHIP COLUMBIA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
The Leadership Columbia Alumni Association (LCAA) prides itself on being a community for Leadership Columbia alumni to foster meaningful and long-lasting relationships with their fellow graduates while also staying connected to what’s happening in and around the greater Columbia region. LCAA aims to provide a space for alumni to reunite with fellow classmates, develop new relationships across four decades of Leadership Columbia graduates, and connect with leaders outside their industry to expand their professional network.
A key aspect of Leadership Columbia is a strong social and community awareness. LCAA understands the importance of staying involved in with the community and encourages Leadership Columbia graduates to assume more significant leadership roles in the Midlands after graduation by providing opportunities to get actively involved throughout the greater Columbia region. LCAA also strives to further develop skills introduced during the program by providing opportunities for professional and personal development and networking.
Programming is designed to keep alumni well-connected both professionally and personally by recognizing the value of cultivating strong relationships. Join today to begin taking advantage of the following membership benefits:
In-Person Leadership Luncheons and Happy Hour Events
Virtual Power Sessions
Annual Women in Leadership Panel
Access to Columbia Chamber programs and events
LCAA is open to all graduates of the Columbia Chamber’s Leadership Columbia program.

For more information about the Alumni Association or upcoming events, please contact Mary Beth Sanderson.
The presenting sponsor for the Leadership Columbia Alumni Association is Schmoyer and Company, LLC. We are grateful for the support and commitment that they make to this program.
*Please note that you must be a graduate of the Leadership Columbia program to join LCAA*
New this year, LCAA will now offer free membership. As LCAA continues to host programming throughout the year, we know that LC alumni are busy people! To make membership more flexible, LCAA will now implement small admission fees for each event rather than charging a yearly membership fee. Registered LCAA members will receive a special discount code to receive 30% off admission for all events.
*Note* If you were a member of the Leadership Columbia Class of 2023, all LCAA events will be free of charge. You will receive an email with your exclusive promo code for free admission.
