CMC: Welcome to Columbus! – cancelled

April 2 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

3/11/2020 update: This event has been cancelled

With respect to Governor Mike DeWine’s latest message and expected mandate to cancel mass gatherings, the Columbus Metropolitan Club will eliminate live audience participation at its popular weekly Wednesday lunch forums for the foreseeable future. CMC will continue with regularly scheduled programming with speakers and panelists filming the forums to be live streamed via YouTube, free of charge. Audiences will receive instructions on how to view the live stream and to submit questions.

Members and registrants will be able to roll registrations into credit for future forums. The organization is also asking members to consider making donations to CMC to offset the loss of revenue during this crisis.

“While the 225 average size of CMC forums may not fall under the forthcoming restriction of ‘mass gatherings,’ CMC is taking this proactive measure, because it is the responsible behavior to keep our individual members and staff safe, and to demonstrate leadership to other organizations who might be developing their posture in response to the COVID-19 crisis for our community as a whole,” said CMC President and CEO Jane Scott.

“We are sad and will miss seeing our friends,” she continued. “The Board and staff are hopeful that we will be able to resume normal live audience programming within a short time. We are committed to our mission of connecting people and ideas through community conversation. We’ll just be hosting it on-line for a bit.”

Thank you for your patience and cooperation,

CMC team
