The DDC is excited to announce a renewed focus on military-community partnerships in 2019. These mutually beneficial relationships offer tangible benefits to partners on both sides of the fence, by sharing and saving resources, and strengthening stakeholder relationships between military installations and the surrounding defense communities. We believe there are many opportunities that the Dayton Region could capitalize upon, given the right tools and opportunity. One of the newest tools is our online, publicly-accessible Partnership Database. This database was created for users to easily search and find partnership ideas and information from across the country. Included in this resource are specific partnership examples that also have potential for possible implementation in the Dayton Region. We are excited to move ahead and lead the community in pursuing these ideas. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the DDC at 937-222-4422.
