The CBA has Moved!

Your new bar association headquarters provides better access to education, networking, and the services you’ve come to expect from the CBA, in a format that best fits your needs.

After more than 30 years downtown, The Columbus Bar Association has moved to a new headquarters that will provide:

  • Ample meeting space and access to larger conference space in the Arena District (as well as the area’s energy and hospitality)
  • Technology to make remote connections seamless while being located within two minutes of all major traffic arteries
  • First-floor access, just steps away from convenient and affordable parking
  • And a special bonus: the savings in rent will allow the CBA to invest in a state-of-the-art production studio to be completed in the fall of 2023. The studio will be available to help members enhance their online profiles and improve their digital marketing efforts

This means that, whether you are coming from suburbia or downtown, logging into a meeting or attending in person, engaging with your peers at the Columbus Bar will be easier and more enjoyable than ever. We look forward to seeing you at YOUR new bar headquarters: 230 West Street, Suite 100, Columbus, OH 43215.
