COLUMBIA – In celebration of its members, programs and accomplishments, the North Columbia Business Association will host its 2014 Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 9, 2014, 6:00pm, 1013 Duke Avenue, Columbia, SC.
Keynote speaker for the occasion will be Mr. Mel Wallace, regional director for the SC State Region Small Business Development Center (SBDC).

In addition to the keynote speech, the 2014 Annual Meeting will feature testimonials from NCBA members, a presentation regarding the past year’s accomplishments and the association’s 2015 plans.
Founded in 2008, the North Columbia Business Association was prompted by a desire by Sabrina Odom to help small businesses and others to avoid her personal trials and tribulations as a small business owner. Two years later the organization became a 501c6 entity with the state of South Carolina and its name was changed to the North Columbia Business Association.
The goals of NCBA are to provide support, professional networking, educational workshops and neighborhood information for the North Columbia business community. NCBA believes it is the “Heartbeat of Columbia Linking Businesses Together for a Change.”
