Public & Community Affairs

The Public and Community Affairs committee focuses on education initiatives such as Partners In Education, The Imagination Library program  and Community Clean Up Days.

Committee involvement includes:

  • Helping find ways to fund Imagination Library for the more than 5,000 children in Montgomery County currently enrolled in the program
  • The Great American Clean Up volunteer effort is held each spring 

The committee connects businesses and schools by supporting Clarksville-Montgomery County School System education initiatives such as 100% Graduation and the Partners In Education breakfast. The Chamber also partners with the Montgomery County Career Center to host a Career Fair with approximately 3,000 job seekers visiting the 100 exhibiting organizations.

Each year the committee works to craft the Chamber's legislative agenda and present it to the Montgomery County delegation in Nashville. The delegation participates in committee meetings to discuss community issues to help determine areas of advocacy. Election year political forums provide an opportunity for candidates to answer questions. The committee planned a very successful international visit to China with twenty-five delegates participating and getting acquainted with the ancient yet changing culture in search of connections to our community.
