Monthly Professional Development

The Volunteer Chapter hosts a luncheon or dinner on the second Thursday of each month at Rothchild Catering & Conference Center in West Knoxville unless otherwise stated in the event promotions. These meetings offer professional development for public relations, marketing and communications professionals — whether you’re a member of PRSA or not.

RSVP to attend each month. Pay online or at the door. The cost is $20 for PRSA members, $25 for non-members and $15 for students.

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.

For more information about the Senior Practitioners Group, email Becky Huckaby, APR.

V Awards

Each year, the Volunteer Chapter recognizes the excellent public relations efforts of our members with the annual Volunteer PR Awards. The awards, judged by other PRSA chapters, go to campaigns, strategies and tactics that exemplify the very best in public relations. Additionally, the V Awards recognize individuals who are making significant contributions to PRSA, the Volunteer Chapter and the public relations profession.
