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 February meeting is the day before Valentine’s Day February 13, 2018 at The Walden Club.  Please make your reservation now and plan to be there at 5:30 for social time.  Chef has a very special meal planned for us.  I hope to see all of you there to share the love we have for EWI and for our EWI family and friends. 

EWI Secret Pal – Do you have a secret pal? Remember to show her the love with a special valentine or gift she will love.  If you do not have a secret pal please see Nena Powell at our meeting to get involved.  It’s so much fun!

Mid-South EWI Chapter Board Forum - We have 7 representatives from the Chattanooga Chapter registered to attend the conference March 16th & 17th in Memphis at the new hotel at Graceland.  You still have time to register; the deadline is March 10, 2018.  See Charlie Rosenquist for additional information.

READING RALLY - We are hosting a Reading Rally for the Children at the Soddy Daisy Head Start Center.  Please mark your calendars for Friday, May 4, 2018 from 9:30-12.  EWI of Chattanooga actually won a $1,000 grant from our corporate office in 2017 for this outstanding program outlining our involvement in the community.  We provide a custom t-shirt for each child along with a nice goody bag and a book for them to take home.  It’ such a rewarding time.  There will be about 150 children and lots of activities.  We need about 8 volunteers to help with activities.  We also need items such as books, small toys, pencils, coloring books and crayons, stickers and/or temporary tattoo’s, etc.  Many thanks to Chandra Sutherland for chairing this event and to our committee of Catherine Cox and Valerie Lucas for bringing it all together.  Please contact them to determine how you can help.

POT OF GOLD - We will have tickets and information about the Pot of Gold Fund-raiser at the February meeting.  Lori Jenkins will have all the details.

VALENTINE’S DAY - Wear red to the meeting. Our photographer will be ready for those special photos.  PLEASE make a special effort to bring more door prize items.  This is a good month to bring, candles, flowers, jewelry, scarves, chocolates, cookies, etc.

Thank you for your continued support of EWI of Chattanooga!
