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.

June is here! This is a fun time of year where we watch children get hyper excited about school being out. We also plan vacations and relaxing time with family and friends. Remember to spend time with your EWI family at our June Executive luncheon.
This month’s speaker is Harold DePriest, the CEO and President at Electric Power Board of Chattanooga. His topic is our changing environment and how that impacts the way we do business. This is also where we honor our Executives, so if you are not your own Executive, please encourage your executive to attend and get it on the calendar.
We are gearing up for next year’s board, and I believe we have already seen great examples of Charlie’s dynamic leadership skills as our President Elect. If you would like the opportunity to work with her this next year, just ask how you can be involved with the board or at least on a committee. This is one of the best ways I know to get to know our fellow reps and better understand all the benefits this organization offers.
LCAM is in Spokane, Washington this year from Wednesday, September 21st to Saturday, September 24th. We will be returning on Sunday. If you are interested in attending, please let me know now. If your firm cannot cover all or part of the cost, we do have a limited number of partial and full scholarships available. These are awarded based on chapter involvement, need, and how quickly you get in your application.
Don’t forget your opportunity to earn “credits” toward your leadership certificate this year by listening to the monthly webinar, attending the monthly chapter meeting or board meeting, and getting involved in a committee.

says about EWI...
"I am pleased that Executive Women International (EWI) is serving business women in our state, and I support their work of enhancing careers, promoting connections, and most of all encouraging community involvement.
As someone who ran a company, I saw firsthand the tremendous positive impact EWI had on one member of my staff in particular, and through her involvement in the organization her professional growth and confidence were greatly enhanced.
I wholeheartedly endorse the work and the mission of EWI."

Our speaker will be Harold DePreist, CEO of Electric Power Board of Chattanooga. His presentation is absolutely fabulous and will be perfect for our executives. He will be sharing his views on a changing environment and how it changes the way we do business. Please plan to attend, even if your executive is unable to be there. We will not have a door prize table but are putting together a few really nice baskets to bid on. If you have items to include in the baskets please get the items to me, Kelly McCoy or Charlie.
