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

Did you know that March is National Women’s History Month?  This month is dedicated to celebrating all women, past and present.  At EWI Chattanooga Chapter we have a lot to celebrate.  We signed the paperwork and presented the check to Chattanooga State to start our endowment, and started the process of beginning an endowment with Southern Adventist University. This is a momentous occasion in our history, and such a wonderful example of how we all work to make a lasting impact in our community.

Just like last year, we are going to continue with “Pot of Gold” fundraising.  Look for tickets to be delivered to you or ask Catherine Cox for some.  They are the same price as last year, and the winnings and drawings are the same. The first drawing for a $100 prize is in April. Thanks to each of you for working hard to sell these tickets.  This should be a lot of fun and easy scholarship fundraiser!

The Chapter Forum is fast approaching.  Charlie Rosenquist is heading up the event, as well as the planning committee meetings.  I know she could use all the help that she can get, so if you have not volunteered please do so.  Also, registration is now open.  Please, register yourself, co-workers and friends.  The event will be at the Hunter Museum on April 13th and is sure to be a fun-filled day focusing on EWI three C’s: Careers, Connections and Community.

Lastly, please continue to keep our sisters in our EWI Chapter in your prayers.  We have several members that are going through life struggles, health and family issues.  If you know of a need, please let me or a board member know.  We want to make sure all the chapter’s needs are met, the need is covered on our prayer list, and our prayer warriors are praying for it.   

I look forward to seeing each of you at our monthly chapter meeting on March 12th at the Walden Club. Our guest speaker is our own Chandra Sutherland from Head Start.  Do not forget your raffle table item(s), and your money for the raffle table. It will be an evening of fellowship, friends, and fun! See you there!

Thankful for EWI and each of YOU,


Valerie Lucas, President of EWI
