In 2017, several Columbians began bouncing around the idea of creating a leadership seminar for fellow Columbians.  This idea became a reality when the inaugural Columbian Community Impact program was launched last summer.  A campaign set forth to introduce this concept to our Harrison Society members with an end goal that all participating Columbians will know how to apply leadership basics in both their personal and professional lives.  The first class of Columbians to complete this 9 month training course will receive their commencement certificates on May 8. This fine young group of men and women have gained valuable insight and knowledge from our volunteer Columbians, who selflessly gave their time to foster and enrich the talents of our future leaders.

Indianapolis has a proud history of community leadership and our goal is to help guide young Columbian entrepreneurs on ways to identify their own passions, while growing the pipeline of civic talent amongst our membership.

This leadership series will mentor you on ways to get involved on a civic level that will begin to define your legacy. Columbians are eager to share their knowledge because with the right set of tools… everyone can make a difference!
