Tennessee Regions’ Roundtable Network Partners and Contacts

Tennessee’s geography and political realities across West, Middle, and East Tennessee provide unique opportunities for collaboration among key groups and the leveraging of strong regional models and expertise that support successful implementation of each region’s efforts.  Through joint work actions and successful collaboration, our lead regional organizations, affiliate organizations, state and federal agency partners, and funders are working together to create an integrated network to catalyze current and future regional efforts through our Tennessee Region’s Roundtable Network.
