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


We had a fantastic Executive Luncheon in June.  Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and those Executives who also came.   Coach Huesman spoke about building relationships and all the ingredients that make up that process.  Trust, respect, integrity, and hard work are just a few of the key components he listed.  He made us realize those same components aren’t just for the football field; they translate to business and personal lives.  He added a few great stories as well; keep your shoes on, get your own Coke, and never judge a gingham dress!!  And you had to be there!!

July brings hot weather and the July 4th holiday, a time to reflect and be thankful for the independence we enjoy every day and the people who provide that freedom.  Thank you to all our service men and women and leaders in our great country!

BARNYARD AUCTION---Get Ready!!  Charlie and the team are gearing up for the 2014 Barnyard Auction.  It will be held Thursday, September 25.  We need your help!!  Individual tickets and sponsorship tables are available for purchase.  We need door prize table items, auction items, and CASH to buy more auction items.  All hands on deck for this great event that raises money for our scholarship recipients!

Thank you,

Kristina Smith, First Tennessee Bank


Lyndhurst Foundation

Thomas Cartter Lupton, a pioneer in Coca-Cola bottling, started Lyndhurst Foundaton in 1938 as Memorial Welfare Foundation.  When he died in 1977, the foundation changed its name to Lyndhurst, and the leadership passed to Mr. Lupton's son, John T. Lupton.  Lyndhurst began to focus upon primary health care, elementary/secondary education, and arts/cultural activities. 

In 1992, John T. Lupton retired and elected his children and nephews as trustees.  Lyndhurst set new priorities, centered on enhancement/enrichment of the natural, educational, cultural and urban environment of Chattanooga.  In 2012, the first major organizational change for Lyndhurst came with the spin-off of five new smaller family foundations, and with the resulting legacy of a smaller parent foundation governed by ten local trustees with continued focus upon Chattanooga. 

The Lyndhurst Foundation identifies and invests in initiatives, institutions, people and programs that contribute to the long-term livability and resilience of Chattanooga.
