About The Partnership
The Partnership is a nonprofit marketing and support organization for the Clarksville-Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, Visit Clarksville (Convention and Visitors Bureau) and Industrial Development Board. In other words, the Partnership bridges efforts to bring new industries to Clarksville, support existing businesses and maintain our high standards of living with arts, entertainment and hospitality.
Many recent advancements are possible due to generous support for the Aspire Foundation, the privately-funded economic development and community marketing initiative for Clarksville-Montgomery County. The city is one of the fastest growing in the nation due in no small part to the support of visionaries and business leaders in this community.
History of the Partnership
In 1992, a blue ribbon community leader task force began a study of how economic development was taking place in Montgomery County. The group successfully completed an 18-month effort in late 1994 by uniting the Tourist Commission (now Convention & Visitors Bureau), the Chamber of Commerce, and the Industrial Development Board under one administration.
An initial Chief Executive Officer was employed in February of 1995. The three entities share administrative, marketing, and accounting staff.
