Welcome to Leadership Clarksville, Tennessee
Leadership Clarksville in Tennessee was founded in 1987 as an independent, executive leadership program to give community leaders a three-dimensional view of the Clarksville/Montgomery County, Tennessee community. The program is designed to identify and introduce to each other the recognized and future leaders of the area and to give them an intense look at the community, its strengths and weaknesses.
The goal of Leadership Clarksville today is the same as it was in 1987:
- To build channels of communication between established leaders.
- To connect these leaders with community issues.
- To equip participants with insights not solutions.
- To involve citizens in a non-partisan manner
The men and women selected each year represent a diversity of races, religions, ages and political persuasions, as well as a geographical cross section of neighborhoods. The class includes native Clarksvillians and people who have moved here in leadership positions. Participants are educators, doctors, bankers, artists, active and retired military, business people, ministers, lawyers, and representatives of labor, public service, international communities and the volunteer sector.
