COMBA is known as Your Business Resource.
Central Ohio Minority Business Association (COMBA) tries to remain open during most periods of inclement weather; however, where extraordinary circumstances warrant, due to weather or other unforeseen business interruption, the company reserves the right to close the facility. Should this occur, COMBA makes a decision by 7:30 a.m. during periods of such inclement weather and will communicate this to workshop attendees and scheduled appointments; COMBA will also post the closure on the homepage of the website. Typically, if the school system is closed, our office will also be closed. If schools are closed for more than one day in a row, please check out website and your email for day-of decisions.
