The American Marketing Association (AMA) Knoxville chapter is proud to announce an upcoming celebration of excellence at the AMAK Honors event.

Join us on January 24, 2024, for the 33rd Annual AMA Knoxville Honors Event at the Knoxville Museum of Art.

The highlight of the evening will be the acknowledgment of Mr. David Butler, the esteemed Executive Director of the Knoxville Museum of Art. Mr. Butler has played a pivotal role in shaping the creative landscape of Knoxville, breathing life into the Knoxville Museum of Art, and fostering a vibrant artistic community.

In addition to Mr. Butler’s recognition, the event will shine a spotlight on the accomplishments of marketing students (Jules Bergman, Leanne Hembree, Matthew Barlow, Lanie Ter Hark) from the University of Tennessee. These students, with their dedication and innovative approaches, have showcased excellence in the field of marketing.
