As a new member with the Nashville Chamber, we're impressed with the level of networking opportunities available to small businesses like ours, and we intend to take advantage of as many as possible. The Regional Business After Hours event allows us to connect with other local businesses and market our services in a relaxed environment. We definitely expect to generate business as a direct result of this exposure.

Economic Development & Partnership 2020
As part of our mission to create economic prosperity, the Nashville Chamber is dedicated to economic development in the Nashville region. We have developed a regional, public-private economic development initiative for the Nashville region - Partnership 2020.
The Partnership 2020 program is the region’s leading economic development initiative for recruiting new businesses to Nashville, including relocating firms and local expansions. The program originated as Partnership 2000 in 1990.
With the leadership of co-chairs Karl Dean, mayor of Nashville, and Jim Wright, chairman and CEO of Tractor Supply Company, the economic development staff and Partnership 2020 investors work to maintain and grow the economy of the Nashville Economic Market (NEM).
