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.

President's Message

EWI of Chattanooga is a great way to gain new Leadership Skills.  Enhancing our connections, careers and community is our plan.  We are trying to grow our chapter’s membership, knowledge of the benefits of EWI and make us more aware of Personal and Professional Development opportunities for our YOU (our reps) and also employees of our member firms.

DeJuan has a great speaker for us.  Lakweshia Ewing will share how we can Unlearn  Everything & Live.  Her background in organizational leadership will be inspirational for all of us.  She is a national speaker and facilitator and was recently awarded one of Chattanooga’s Top 20 Leaders under 40.  I can’t wait to learn from her!

Let’s make our March Meeting fun!  Wear your green, in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.   I really will have my green-on, to avoid being pinched. 

Bring lots of door prize items themed for St Patrick’s Day and Easter.  February was a great month for our door prizes.  We made $214 because we had a great assortment of “fun” items and we spent lots of one-dollar bills.  So, bring, cash, check or debit/credit cards for door prizes.  Do you know you can now use our “Square” to get money from your debit or credit card to use for door prizes, your meal or Pot of Gold Tickets?

We truly appreciate your continued support of EWI of Chattanooga!  Please join me for our meeting March 12, 2018 at The Walden Club.  Make your reservation now and plan to be  there at 5:30 for social time.
