Mission Statement

"The FBI Columbia Citizens Academy Alumni Association (FBI Columbia CAAA) is a nonprofit organization, separate and apart from the FBI.

The FBI CCAAA goals include: 

(A) Providing a forum for strengthening the relationship and improving the understanding between the FBI Columbia Division and the community it serves. 

(B) Facilitating the continuing education of FBI Citizens Academy graduates about the FBI, its mission, activities, and people.
