150 from Nashville visiting Baltimore, D.C. on study mission

Nearly 150 local business and community leaders left on a trip to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Sunday on a joint leadership and study mission.

"There is a real value in making these trips to see what other cities are doing," said Ron Samuels, vice chairman of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and visit co-leader in a news release.

"When we take into account the best practice of other cities and incorporate them into the Nashville area, these visits become a community development tool. This is because tangible results are impacted and produced, such as the development of the downtown Nashville Public Library and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center."
