Professional Groups

01-23-2016

There are many professional organizations that range from a locally formed group to international ones with chapters or groups in many countries.  Larger ones will have groups in each state and major city including Memphis.   IF AN AREA OF INTEREST IS NOW SHOWN BELOW THIS DOES NOT MEAN IT DOES NOT EXIST.  Additional professional groups will be added as information and time to enter the informarion become available.  Try doing a Google search for the area of your interest with the words "professional organization".

Recommendations for groups not listed may be sent to Questions@TheCTGroups.org and include:
  • the official name of the organization including any acronym or official abbreviation
  • what professional area or skill this organization is involved with
  • information, such as a web site, for the national, state and/or local groups 
  • information regarding any group or other presence of the organization on LinkedIn


 
 
Professional organizations are an excellent networking resource and the opportunity to craft new friendships in your field.  Some groups offer reduced rates for new members or those in transition.
