RECAP: Intro Nashville December Session

The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted another successful Intro Nashville session last week! Aimed at both newcomers and native Nashvillians to gain a behind-the-scenes look into our region, the Chamber’s Intro Nashville program included a treasure trove of information for residents of Middle Tennessee.

The program included three half days of programming that touched on all the unique characteristics of our region. The first day, titled “It” City?, explored our local economy by featuring leaders from a variety of key industries including: music and entertainment, hospitality and tourism, real estate and development, and the healthcare and finance industries.

The second day, titled Athens of the South, started at Hastings Architecture, previously home to the Nashville Public Library. Participants talked about our region’s education continuum and workforce. This was followed by a stop at the National Museum of African American Music to discuss state, regional, and metro government with local elected officials.

On day four, Find Your Rhythm in Music City, participants met at the Nashville Public Library downtown to discuss our local culinary scene and community involvement. The day closed after a quick walk to Fifth + Broad to learn more about our region’s cultural diversity and sports landscape.

The program concluded with a closing reception featuring former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean in downtown Nashville. While looking out at the Nashville skyline with the program participants, Mayor Dean highlighted pivotal moments in Nashville’s history and mentioned various landmarks that make our city special.

Registration is currently open for the program sessions in February, April and June. Participant acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis. To learn more about the Intro Nashville program, contact Caitlin Okrzesik, Director of Community Initiatives, at or visit

The Intro Nashville program would not be possible without the gracious backing of our Supporting Sponsors: Amazon, LBMC, Lightning100, Made in TN, and Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. We would also like to thank Intro Nashville’s Corporate Sponsors: Fifth Third Bank, The Ashton Real Estate Group, Polsinelli, and Wilson Bank & Trust for ensuring that we can continue to offer high-quality programming for the region’s business community.
