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

Happy Fall Y’all!  It is that time of year when we all are preparing to go from one holiday after another. I love this time of year, because it comes with cooler weather, lots of good food, and a ton of memory making moments.

Our board members are gearing up for an eventful,fun-filled, strategy  focused board retreat weekend in the Smoky Mountains.  We hope to return with some good ideas, suggestions, and plans to share with the membership. This is going to be an exciting, busy year for our Chapter!  Our goal is to make sure EWI Chattanooga continues to make a difference within each of our lives, and our community. 

I would like to take a moment and honor one of our members that passed       recently.  Sandy Witzel (representing Vision Hospitality) went home to be  with the Lord on October 15th.  After her passing, our Chapter made a donation in her honor to the Kidney Foundation.  I ask that you continue to keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.  She was a very special lady; dedicated to EWI, others, and our community.  She will be missed greatly. 

Lastly, we have several of our members that are struggling with health issues, family obligations, and life stresses.  I ask that you reach out to one or more of our members, and make sure they know you are thinking of them.  If they are not present at one of our meetings, please let them know they were missed.  Let us all work to draw closer to each other, and continue to make our organization stronger from the inside out.  

Our upcoming November meeting will be focusing on how to grow our    Chapter.  We have an excellent speaker from the Chamber who will come   and share their experience and lessons learned on this topic.  I am really looking forward to seeing each of you at our November meeting.  Don’t  forget your  secret pal gift, raffle table item and money for the raffle table.   It is going to be a fun evening of fellowshipping, learning, and good food!

Thankful for EWI and each of YOU,


Valerie Lucas, President of EWI
