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

Our December meeting is always my favorite meeting of the year for many reasons.  It’s our Holiday Party and we have so many fun things going on…just for you and our scholarship recipients!

EWI of Chattanooga promotes personal and professional             development.  And, we support Connections, Careers and Communities in so many ways.

We make connections to enhance our careers and the careers of our scholarship recipients.  This makes a big difference in the communities we live, work,  worship, shop, attend schools and volunteer in.  Thank you for  the support you and your member firms make to EWI of Chattanooga.

The funds we raise from ewiGras and pecan sales fund our Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) scholarship programs at The University of    Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), Chattanooga State Community College (CSCC) and Southern Adventist University (SAU).  We are honored to have  all of them as a member firm.  We will distribute the funds in December, and    invite the recipients to attend our December meeting.  You will not want to miss their stories and heart-felt thank you for the scholarships they receive from EWI of Chattanooga. 

During this holiday season I am grateful for the personal and professional     development opportunities, business partners and friends I have made    throughout our organization.   I am proud to be the EWI representative for  Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union for the last 24 years.  Please continue to help EWI of Chattanooga grow our membership.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the December 12th meeting at The Walden Club at 5:45 pm.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to each of you!  Please enjoy the holidays with your friends and family!
