Joint Committee on Regional Collaboration

The purpose of the Joint Committee is to study options and develop recommendations for improving coordination and decision-making across Middle Tennessee according to a set of shared goals. Members serve on the committee to find opportunites that are mutually beneficial to both organizations and their respective local community.
