Columbia Center Rotary Club has seven standing committees. Click on the links on the left of the page for information on each committee.
 
Club members are expected to serve on at least one committee. Some members serve on several committees depending upon their personal, professional or service interests. Each committee has a chairperson who serves as an officer on the club Board of Directors.
 
The committees provide funding, volunteer time and other support for a variety of local and global causes, causes often related to Rotary International's six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever:
