North Columbia Business Association was established in March 2008. The founder of the association is Ms. Sabrina Odom. The purpose of the association is to unite all businesses located in the North Columbia area, while re-building and re-establishing the image of the North Columbia community.
The NCBA is currently nestled in the heart of North Columbia at the corner of Duke and Arlington, on the edge of the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary campus, one block from North Main Street.
NCBA offers the North Columbia business community the following Committees:
NCBA holds monthly meetings to bring members up-to-date on the activities of the organization and provide speaking opportunities for individuals from government, business and community organizations. Meetings also provide an opportunity for members to meet potential new clients.
Workshops held every quarter: Each quarter – our partners Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary Lenoir Rhyne University and Columbia College.
Government Affairs – Donald Gist, Tommy Burkett
NCBA arranges for elected Representatives to meet once a week at our weekly Coffee Talk Round Table to discuss concerns of business owners of the community.
NCBA holds social events every year such as the SC Cornbread Festival, Golf Tournament, Annual Mayor’s Luncheon and the NCBA Annual Meeting.
NCBA regularly communicates with neighborhood associations to maintain and expand efforts to make North Columbia a more vibrant neighborhood in which to live and do business.
