The NKBPA Needs You

You are a vital spoke in the wheel that makes up the North Knoxville Business and Professional Association, in order for the group to continue we need leaders willing to drive us forward. As members roll off the board or as it sometimes happens, are unable to serve, we have new board seats to fill. Serving on a board is a wonderful way to support North Knoxville Businesses and the community we care about. But it also can be a powerful way to build or expand your own skills and expertise.

Individuals who serve on a board have the opportunity to speak into the community they serve, develop and grow as leaders and cultivate relationships with peers, professionals, leaders, and to become community thought leaders. Consider joining the North Knoxville Business and Professional Board today, we need you, and it’s a great way to invest in the growth of our community. Please submit your questions or board recommendations to George Bove no later than November 30.
