Senior Practitioners Social Hour

The Senior Practitioners Group is open to the Volunteer Chapter’s members who serve in a senior role in their company or organization. Senior practitioners regularly have social hours, speak to student or professional groups, and write monthly bylined articles in the Greater Knoxville Business Journal.

The Greater Knoxville Business Journal’s monthly column focuses on public relations’ value in business and organizational management, using a topic that corresponds to the Business Journal’s monthly editorial focus.
