Knoxville Chapter’s Board of Directors invites you to join us in your favorite light side or dark side attire for a ceremony honoring Marketing Jedi Master Tom Catani on May the Fourth, 2022!
During this special event, the Chapter recognizes an Outstanding Marketing Professional in our community. The Outstanding Marketing Professional is a lifetime achievement award presented to an individual who has made meaningful and innovative contributions to our community and in the field of marketing. Past recipients include Jim Clayton, James A. Haslam, II, Townes Lavidge Osborn and Pat Summitt, to name a few.
In addition to honoring an outstanding professional and AMA Knoxville’s chapter leaders, the annual Honors event raises funds to provide scholarships for exceptional students majoring in marketing at the University of Tennessee. This program, the Eagle Endowment, has provided over $100,000 in scholarship money in an effort to preserve and grow the marketing industry.
About the Honoree
