The Mission of the Columbus Metropolitan Club is connect people and ideas through community conversation.
CMC's vision is an informed and engage citizenry.
CMC achieves this mission by planning and implementing 60-70 public forums each year featuring nearly 200 speakers, panelists, debaters and moderators on a wide variety of topics. Forums always include ample time for unsolicited, random questions from the audience.
The organization prides itself in being a credible source of information about current affairs – the organization to which Columbus citizens look to provide a platform for a discussion of social, political, economic and cultural issues of concern to the community.
