MAYORS' PARTNERSHIP FOR PROGRESS

The mayors began meeting in 1995 from the vision of several regional mayors. In 1996, they were formally incorporated as the Mayors’ Partnership for Progress, signing an agreement for technical assistance with Ohio University. The organization later became a nonprofit in 2003.
