We're kicking off summer volunteering at the SC Day of Civic Hacking. Stay tuned all summer long for leadership, service and fun!

Make the Most of Your Summer

Hello COR Friends,

Can you believe June is just a few days away? Stay plugged in this summer with plenty of opportunities to get involved and give back to the community. We've got some fun things lined up to keep you busy in the lazy days of summer.

Volunteer for SC Day of Civic Hacking!

SC Day of Civic Hacking is June 1st, and Columbia is getting in on the action. Civic hacking is when coders hack for the benefit of the community. Columbia is hosting a Hackathon and we're looking for volunteers to help run the show!

Have fun, learn about hacking and be a part of a new national movement. Register for a volunteer shift or sign up to participate in the Hackathon!

COR's Action Team Meetup is Tuesday

Get involved and help us plan for the fall! COR's Action Team Meetup is happening at 5:30 p.m. on June 4 at the Columbia Chamber, 930 Richland Street. Mix and mingle with our members, find out everything we've got planned and get involved with an Action Team. Parking is available behind the building.

Learn2Lead with YLS

The Young Leaders Society & the Columbia Museum of Art is hosting Learn2Lead on June 20. Learn2Lead teaches you how to serve your community through board service. We encourage you to register to attend!

Member of the Month

Meet Kaci, our member of the month! Kaci is permanently wearing a smile. She's a rockstar on our Buzz team and volunteers with us whenever she can. This one is a good read - Kaci offers some awesome insight and inspiration!

Support Our Military with the Columbia Chamber

The Chamber is a big supporter of our military community. We'd like to invite you to join us at the grand reopening of the USO at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport. Head to the airport at 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 30 to celebrate the newly renovated center.

Military Night with the Columbia Blowfish is coming up on Saturday, June 8 and you're invited to attend! General admission is just $6 and military ID holders get in free! See the Blowfish play the Hi Tom's and help us recognize the heroes in our community. 

Thanks to our Corporate Members
