First Tennessee Development District's involvement with regional leadership development places its staff in a position to serve our communities' efforts to become Three-Star Certified. A pre-requisite to applying for the Three-Star certification centers around a community’s successful development of an annual strategic plan to guide the work of the community. The District staff provide facilitation of the planning process and work directly with communities as requested to complete the Three-Star process.
Matt Garland, the Regional Economic Development Specialist for the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development can provide information regarding the Three-Star Program in the FTDD region.
