Steiner & Associates

The Future of Retail and Retail Experience in the age of COVID

Founder & CEO Yaromir Steiner

With everything changing so quickly, how can Retail remain adaptive, responsive and  innovative.


We had the biggest applicant pool for our 6 Phoenix scholarships EVER!  By adding a few changes to our process – paper brochures in Financial Aid offices and an online application form – we nearly tripled our applicant pool.  In total 58 students applied.   This list represented all the major colleges/universities in Franklin County (our target) and a more diverse list of academic pursuits. 



    As we continue to pivot around the rules and requirements facing us each week we have two upcoming opportunities for local volunteering. 
    Small groups of 5 Rotarians will assist at the Mid Ohio Food Collective Community Garden on August 7th and 21st.

    Annual Golf Outing

    Join us September 25th for our annual Columbus Rotary Fall Classic at the beautiful Safari GC.  Grab your friends and get your foursome together, or we will help find you one. 
    This year we'd like to challenge other Rotary Clubs to gather their best as we take on all comers!   
    Sign up with the registration form here, on the Club Calendar, or at the Rotary office.

    It's been brought to our attention that we need to remember our Zoom P's and Q's on Mondays.  Scott works as fast as he can behind the scenes each week to identify side conversations, dogs barking and cruise ship horns blasting. 
    It will help if you;
    1. Use the MUTE button,
    2. Don't call, text, or email Scott starting at 11:50ish (he's working on it),
    3. In full screen mode, drag the chat box to the side to continue to see the screen. 
    Do we Make A Difference
    In May 2019 Shayanna Hinckle-Moore received the Make A Difference scholarship founded by Mary Beth and Luke McCormick.

    She sent us a note about her first year at OSU. 
    Start Your Pile Now
    President Chip's office is continuing it's annual Earth Day Recycling Drive on August 28.
