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

May this New Year be happy and full of blessings for you! As I look back at 2014, I realize that my resolution to do and have experiences outside of my norm really did come into fruition. It started with a lifestyle change to become healthier, to finish my education and to enhance my career. It ended with taking on the challenge of being President of EWI. As a natural introvert, this was a BIG step for me!

 As you create your resolutions this year, I hope you consider to do this as well. Make this year the year you go outside of your norm! Experience life, be a blessing to a colleague (even the ones that are hard to love), and grow your knowledge base. EWI has many programs and connections that can help you with these goals. All you have to do is utilize what your membership offers.

Let’s make this year the best ever! Life is too short to be filled with dread. Also, don’t forget that the first meeting of the year will be held in our new location, The Doubletree. We look forward to seeing you there.
