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

September marks the end of my era as your President. The months have flown by but weirdly enough, it feels like a lifetime. I have learned quite a bit in this COVID time. The plans that we had made, the events we had planned, all got moved, cancelled or shifted. We learned how to do Zoom and meet virtually. I think our group will grow closer though from all this. We need to connect now more than ever. My prayers is that this will be sooner rather than later. Safely, of course! I know Chandra Sutherland is going to be an amazing President. I can’t wait to see what wonderful things she and her board has planned.

Our meeting time this month will be on September 18th for the LCAM Watch Party at the Embassy Suites Hamilton Place. Thank you Ashley Hollis for host-ing us. For the first time in LCAM history, they are going to have it online and it’s going to be FREE! So, we are going to gather (safely) and watch, network and learn together. If you can’t make it, we will be hosting a Zoom meeting afterwards to talk/meet about LCAM and EWI Chattanooga. Please make sure that you download the Eventsential app, create a profile and then add LCAM as your event. This will allow you to do LCAM with us or at your home/office.

Fundraising this year has been sadly low. Understandably. We are coming up with some unique ideas to get it back up. So please stay tuned for more details and remember, this is only successful with your participation. We would love to be able to present SAU with more money for the endowment. If you have any ideas, questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me or a Board member. We would love to hear from you. If you want to be on the Board, we still have some needs. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested.

May this month bring us all health and blessings!

Tammy Hargis

Your EWI of Chattanooga President
