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

October is here and so is your new EWI Board!!!

As your incoming President, I could not be more excited about what is ahead for our organization!  The incoming EWI Board brings a mix of experience and newness; however, we face a challenge more than ever this year to think out of the box!   Even in the midst of a global pandemic that has affected many of our family, friends and professional CONNECTIONS, our CAREERS, and our COMMUNITIES, we all need EWI more than ever! EWI’s focus on the Three C’s (Connections, Careers, and Communities) can be what helps each of us personally and professionally to get through and to thrive!  As our new National Corporate President, Kristi Emmons Jones said…”We are better together, We are EWI!”

Plans for EWI’s October chapter meeting include the installation of the new board and our first meeting in-person at the Walden’s Club…in several months!!  We want to meet the needs of our members by also offering to join us by zoom as well!  So please make your plans to join us either in person or virtually!  Either way…we can’t wait to see you and hear from you!!

October also brings about the time for the new board to meet and plan for the year.  I am happy and already inspired in working with this creative group of women!  Watch out for Fundraising, Membership, Programs, and Communications to engage you! Thank you Ashley, Kathy, Tammy Z, Karen, Nena, Suzanne, Ani, and Tammy H for all saying yes! 

If you missed LCAM this year…you missed a first!  It was virtual!  We are all very proud of  Charlie Rosenquist and her role in LCAM this year!  Charlie is also serving as Secretary/Treasurer on the Corporate Board!    Charlie thank you for representing Chattanooga EWI! You are awesome!

Although fall is traditionally a season of letting things go, it can also be a season of renewal!     My hope for each of you is that you are inspired, engaged, and empowered by EWI of Chattanooga this year!

Blessings to all!
