September Kickoff – Thursday 19th

Debbie H. Jones, CPA

President, UT Federal Credit Union

We’re kicking off this fall with a chance to hear from a leader in our community! Debbie has been employed at the UT Federal Credit Union since 1996 and is now the president. Debbie has extensive public accounting experience in four states as well as international banking experience in Germany. Debbie will be sharing from her experiences and current role as president.
We will be eating in the conference room at the UT Federal Credit Union, 2100 White Avenue. The location is just one block off Cumberland Ave on White Ave, behind Mellow Mushroom. White Ave is a one-way street going east so approach should be from 22nd Ave. Street parking is very limited but some metered and unmetered spots are close by, and there is an inexpensive parking garage across the street. The E TN Children’s Hospital garage entrance is accessible from Clinch Ave. Cost is $2.00.

Employee Evaluations

A growing CPA firm in Knoxville has asked what other firms do for employee evaluations. If anyone feels comfortable sharing the template for your evaluations, and any feedback on how effective you have found them to be, we will pass it along to them. If you feel it would benefit your own firm, we can share with you what we find in our research. Thank you for your help!

Please contact Carol Fox at cfox@argjobs.com if you have any information.


If you are new to AFWA we have monthly lunches on the third Thursdays of the month. This month we are meeting April 18th at The Tea Room off of Kingston Pike in the same shopping center as The Fresh Market. We are excited to have a fashion show, great lunch, and a great speaker, Judy Gardner.
