The American Association of Inside Sales Professionals is the leading organization for networking and continuing education in inside sales. Its now open to every inside sales professional in the Volunteer state.
For leading sales organizations across all types of industries, experts forecast inside sales as the manifest destiny for the future of their operations. Here in Tennessee, where Ambition is headquartered, inside sales is a budding profession in major cities like Nashville (home to booming healthcare and IT sectors), Memphis (home to Fortune 500 headquarters like FedEx and International Paper) and Knoxville and Chattanooga (both experiencing substantial growth in the logistics and real estate industries).
And yet, prior to the inception of AA-ISP's Middle Tennessee Chapter in the summer of 2014, there were scarce, if any, communities devoted to inside sales to be found in our entire state.
That all changed last week, with the advent of our first-ever statewide Inside Sales organization: The Tennessee Chapter of AA-ISP.
Networking & Education for TN Inside Sales Pros
Our goal is to help AA-ISP realize its own manifest destiny here in Tennessee, by bringing it to each of the four major cities in the Volunteer State. Ambition Director of Marketing Jeremy Boudinet and Sr. Account Executive Noah Cudzilo have assumed the top leadership positions in the Chapter. They're bringing AA-ISP on a world tour of Tennessee, with rotating stops in Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga every 6-12 weeks.
At each event, there will be expert presentations, guest speakers, networking opportunities, and most importantly, food, fun and fellowship for like-minded members of the inside sales profession.
Meetings will be open to anyone affiliated with the inside sales profession or seeking to learn more about AA-ISP.
Chattanooga Startup Week Kickoff
We're kicking things off in a big way, co-hosting a "Startup Sales Summit" with Cirrus Insight during Chattanooga Startup Week on October 13, 2015.
The free event starts at 5pm EST at the Society of Work in downtown Chattanooga. The featured presentation will be a panel discussion with Ambition CSO Jared Houghton, Cirrus Insight COO Brandon Bruce and Lamp Post Group CEO Ted Alling on how to successfully scale a startup sales team.

We're excited about the promise that this group holds to help bring together the Tennessee community of inside sales professionals. Thank you to departing Chapter President Gayle Goodall and AA-ISP Membership Director Ashley Becker for helping get AA-ISP in Tennessee off the ground.
We look forward to carrying the torch moving forward. From now on, the Tennessee Chapter of AA-ISP will be the leading force for bringing together our home state's inside sales professionals to help all of us achieve greater heights.
