I have the pleasure of organizing, coordinating and executing events from start to finish for the Knoxville Chamber. I manage event communication with hosts, guests, vendors, Chamber staff and Chamber Ambassadors. I also oversee the registration and reconciliation processes for each event as well as event calendar and email updates. I also get to work with our Ambassador program to help manage and coordinate volunteer teams for each event.
