The CA Board of Directors serves as the final authority on all matters regarding the Columbia Association by reviewing CA policy and budget matters, developing strategic initiatives, addressing community issues and hiring the CA President. The Board is made up of one representative from each of the nine Columbia villages and Town Center. More information about CA is available at ColumbiaAssociation.org.
The village community association boards direct the business affairs of the village community associations, review policy and budget matters, develop initiatives, address community issues and hire the village manager. Find more information about each village by visiting its respective web site.
