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

Please join us for the July 10th EWI Meeting at The Walden Club.  We will be celebrating Independence Day.  Let’s wear our Red, White and Blue and also bring door prizes in Red, White and Blue.

We have a wonderful speaker lined up.  I’m bringing two (2) guests to the meeting to learn what Darin Wright with Elea Blake has to say about our personal color analysis.  Based on color science, we all have a need to learn what our own best colors are and how color affects our lives. 

Sandy Saylors with Robert Half Associates will provide our “Member Spotlight” and Valerie Lucas will be announcing our 2018-2019 slate of officers.

Our Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting (LCAM) is fast approaching September 19-22.  The conference will be held in Raleigh, NC.  We are celebrating 80 years for Executive Women International.  There will be 7 representatives attending from our Chattanooga Chapter.  We are looking forward to great speakers, networking with other chapter leaders, and learning best practices of other chapters to share with you.

Our Pot of Gold fundraiser is going great we have made $4,460. Let’s try to get that total to $5,000 this month. Since we did not have a June meeting there will be two (2) drawings for $100 each.  Who will the lucky winners be?  Please bring all of your un-sold tickets and money to the July meeting.  Be sure to purchase more tickets at the meeting and take more tickets to sell.  Remember our secret pal?  You may want to purchase a Pot of Gold ticket for her.

I hope you will make time to spend with friends and family, this month, to celebrate our freedom.  Because of this freedom we can celebrate the accomplishments we have made personally, professionally and in our community.

Monthly Speaker Info

July 10, 2018:
Speaker: Darin Wright Elea Blake Cosmetics
When: Tuesday, July 10th at 5:30 p.m.
Topic: “How To Instill External And Internal Confidence Through Color” Darin Wright founded elea blake cosmetics in Chattanooga over 20 years ago with a small line of foundation colors. Wright didn’t know what would come of her creation but she knew that women needed a change from the stiflingly small collection of foundation colors, which did not represent the myriad of beautiful skin tones that made up our city. Now, after 20 years, both Chattanooga and elea blake have grown past anyone’s expectation. What started as a small collection of colors, has grown to a studio that manufactures a full line of makeup mediums in thousands of color options, ships globally, and is an innovator in the color analysis science with their own personal color analysis system- ebhues™. Chattanooga has been the perfect incubator for Darin's company as she values entrepreneurship, localization of production and creation, and unlimited creativity.
