Many people believe that the history of an organization helps to form and shape its culture. Others believe that the culture informs the history of organizations. What are your thoughts? I look forward to reading them below.
One organization with a long and rich history is the Business and Professional Women’s Club. On December 13, 1937, the Johnson City Business and Professional Women met at the Hotel John Sevier. Marie Harrison was program chairman for the evening; the topic was “What We Buy and Sell Within the United States.” (Source: Archives of Appalachia, Cox-Painter-Adams Family Papers.) The Johnson City chapter is sadly no longer in existence; however, the Business and Professional Women’s Clubs are still active in many areas.
