Executive Women International® (EWI) addresses the business professional's quest for personal achievement and drive for
professional development. EWI is unique among the myriad of associations in that the company, or firm, holds
the membership, not the individual.
EWI offers many benefits to both the individual representative and the firm. Representatives who participate in EWI have access to a variety of events and programs. Their companies benefit through the professional connections and the recognition received as business leaders locally and internationally.
We focus on Connections, Careers and Community.
Connections - Promoting member firms and its representatives. We believe that connecting is about the dynamic evolving relationship linking our Chapters, our administrative team, our members and the larger communities we live and work in.
Careers - Enhancing personal and professional development through learning programs and EWI's Academy of Leadership
Community - Encouraging involvement by donating time and resources to improve lives through scholarship programs, literacy initiatives and other community programs.
The Chattanooga Chapter meets monthly; typically the second Tuesday evening.

For those of you that were unable to make it to the 2017 Reading Rally at Soddy Daisy Head Start, I highly recommend penciling in some time so you can enjoy the fun next year! Just imagine what you missed: meeting the Cat in the Hat (Suzanne Harris), petting a live bunny, and best of all, reading a story to several classes and watch as they bring the book to life. Yep, this year I was assigned inside instead of outside and read “HOP on POP” to six different classes! After we finished the story the kids got to HOP on packing wrap and POP the bubbles. (Even though I had a POP (Parent of a student) as an assistant, I was unable to get him to agree to let all the kids HOP on POP!) Catherine Cox did a great job in the book store and I heard that Ashley Fox was the Star of the group! A big thanks to Chandra for allowing us to once again help with this program. I look forward to the opportunity to attend next year.
Below are a few items that I want to remind everyone about:
- No Dirty Dishes: Gift Cards are needed for our No Dirty Dishes basket(s). Please bring any gift cards with you to the March meeting. Cash donations are happily accepted if you would prefer not to purchase the gift cards. We will be drawing our No Dirty Dishes during the Executive Luncheon so please bring your gift cards, movie tickets, etc. that can be used in the baskets.
This year’s goal is to build at least 2 baskets to raffle off. We would like for everyone to sell a minimum of 10 tickets each!

says about EWI...
"I am pleased that Executive Women International (EWI) is serving business women in our state, and I support their work of enhancing careers, promoting connections, and most of all encouraging community involvement.
As someone who ran a company, I saw firsthand the tremendous positive impact EWI had on one member of my staff in particular, and through her involvement in the organization her professional growth and confidence were greatly enhanced.
I wholeheartedly endorse the work and the mission of EWI."
