Policy & Leadership Forum

The Policy and Leadership Forum is a lively group of bipartisan individuals whose conversation builds on the strong foundation of our heritage of public engagement.  We believe the Club, and the Forum, offer an inviting venue for Columbians and their guests to meet important individuals of influence around state public policy issues and various local and regional hot topics while we engage in stimulating, respectful conversations.

Wine Society

This club speaks to all of our wine enthusiasts.  Several wine dinners and tastings will be held throughout the year.  For those members interested in a personalized private wine locker in the Harrison Grille, you can reserve this for an annual fee, allowing you to enjoy wine from your locker during your Club visits.  Wine locker members receive additional perks such as complimentary wine tastings and reduced fees for other wine related events hosted at the Club.  However, any Columbian who enjoys gaining knowledge about wine are invited to attend these festive gatherings.  This group is co-led by Columbians Mark Rowlands and Dr. Miles Schroeder.

The Harrison Society is the Club’s premier group for young professionals. The Society hosts monthly activities to show Columbian Pride, interact in a social environment, and build long lasting relationships. Though the Society focuses on members in their 20’s and 30’s, all Columbians are welcome to attend Harrison Society events.
